Loading Related Data
Entity Framework Core allows you to use the navigation properties in your model to load related entities. There are three common O/RM patterns used to load related data.
- Eager loading means that the related data is loaded from the database as part of the initial query.
- Explicit loading means that the related data is explicitly loaded from the database at a later time.
- Lazy loading means that the related data is transparently loaded from the database when the navigation property is accessed.
