In this video, learn how to use lightweight data models in conjunction with the Entity Framework in-memory database provider to seed the database with test data.
- [Instructor] Since we're using an in-memory database…for development, any data that we save will be lost…when the API restarts.…This also means, of course, that the database will be empty…when the application starts up.…To make it easy to consistently test the API with the same…data, we can seed the database with test data…each time it starts up.…I'll make a new class to hold all…this database seeding code.…I'll just make this at the root of the project,…and create this class called SeedData.…I'll make this class static,…and add a method called AddTestData.…
This will also be a static method and it'll be async as well…This add test data method will take a hotel API DB context,…and perform a quick check.…If it already has data available, then we're probably not…working with our in-memory database, and we wanna just bail.…(typing on keyboard)…If the database is empty, we'll seed it with a couple…of test rooms.…I'll paste this code I have copied to the clipboard.…
