Quick Start Example

Configuration through Microsoft.Extensions.Configuration

Session factory setup
namespace MyApp.Database
        public class MyDbSessionFactoryBuilder
                private readonly ISessionFactory _instance;

                public ISessionFactory Instance
                        get { return _instance; }

                public MyDbSessionFactoryBuilder(IConfiguration cfg, string configSectionName = "MyDatabaseConnectionSettings")
                        var configuration = Fluently.Configure();
                        configuration.InitializeFromConfigMsSql(cfg, configSectionName);
                        _instance = configuration.BuildSessionFactory();
IConfiguration settings example based on appsettings.json
        "ServerName": "Server name",
        "DataBaseName": "data-base name",
        "UserName": "user name",
        "UserPassword": "password",

Configuration through *.config files

Session factory setup
namespace MyApp.Database
        public class MyDbSessionFactoryBuilder
                private readonly ISessionFactory _instance;

                public ISessionFactory Instance
                        get { return _instance; }

                public MyDbSessionFactoryBuilder(string configSectionName = "MyDatabaseConnectionSettings")
                        var configuration = Fluently.Configure();
                        _instance = configuration.BuildSessionFactory();
Configuration file
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
                <section name="MyDatabaseConnectionSettings" type="System.Configuration.NameValueSectionHandler, System, Version=1.0.5000.0,Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b77a5c561934e089" />

                <add key="ServerName" value="Server name" />
                <add key="DataBaseName" value="data-base name" />

                <add key="UserName" value="user name" />
                <add key="UserPassword" value="password" />

FluentNHibernate quick setup variants

Database type Method Comment
Microsoft SQL Server InitializeFromConfigMsSql Connection using System.Data managed driver
MySQL InitializeFromConfigMySql Connection using MySql.Data managed driver
PostgreSQL InitializeFromConfigPostgreSql Connection using Npgsql managed driver
Oracle InitializeFromConfigOracleOdpNet Connection using Oracle.ManagedDataAccess managed driver (recommended for Oracle)
Oracle InitializeFromConfigOracleOdpNetNative Connection using or unmanaged drivers
Oracle InitializeFromConfigOracleClient Connection using Oracle.DataAccess.x86 or Oracle.DataAccess.x64 unmanaged drivers
SQLite InitializeFromConfigSqLite Connection using System.Data.SQLite managed driver
SQLite InitializeFromConfigSqLiteInMemory Connection using System.Data.SQLite managed driver using in-memory database

Additional configuration options

Option Name Type Description
Port int Database port number
ShowSql bool Executed SQL queries can be displayed (in the output specified in the ShowSqlOutputType parameter) by setting ShowSql option, default values is false
ShowSqlOutputType ShowSqlOutputType Sets the executed SQL commands output type. Possible values: Console, Trace. Default value is: Console

Custom NHibernate configuration

Can be specified via lambda extension, for example, a custom dialect

configuration.InitializeFromConfigMsSql(configSectionName, c => c.Dialect<MsSql2012Dialect>());

Session lambda extensions for data retrieval


var user = session.GetSingleObject(x => x.Name == "FooName");
var users = session.GetList(x => x.Name.StartWith("A"));
