Remarks

This method is provided as a convenient and discoverable way to add configuration to the Entity Framework. Internally it works in the same way as using AddDependencyResolver to add an appropriate resolvers for DbProviderFactory and IProviderInvariantName. This means that, if desired, the same functionality can be achieved using a custom resolver or a resolver backed by an Inversion-of-Control container.
