This initialization can conditionally create the database and/or seed it with data. The strategy used is set using the static InitializationStrategy property of the Database class. The following implementations are provided: DropCreateDatabaseIfModelChanges<TContext>, DropCreateDatabaseAlways<TContext>, CreateDatabaseIfNotExists<TContext>.

public interface IDatabaseInitializer<in TContext> where TContext : DbContext
type IDatabaseInitializer<'Context (requires 'Context :> DbContext)> = interface
