I'm working in a project that uses EF Code First. I'm trying to use migration features. I don't want to use Package Console Manager. How can I execute the "Add-Migration" and "Update-Database" programmatically?
add-migration TestMigration01 -force update-database
You have a couple of choices. You can use the dbmigrator class from within your code: http://romiller.com/2012/02/09/running-scripting-migrations-from-code/
Or you can use migrate.exe which is handy for running them in a build step, etc. https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/data/jj618307.aspx
