Implementing Zero Or One to Zero Or One relationship in EF Code first by Fluent API

I have two POCO classes

public class Order
{
int id;
string code;
int? quotationId; //it is foreign key
public int Id{get;set;}
public string Code{get;set;}
public int? QuotationId{get;set;}
Quotation quotation;
public virtual Quotation Quotation { get; set; }
....
}

public class Quotation
{
int Id;
string Code;
public int Id{get;set;}
public string Code{get;set;}
Order order;
public virtual Order Order { get; set; }
....
}


each Order may made from one or zero quotation, and each quotation may cause an order, so I have an "one or zero" to "one or zero" relation, how can I implement this, in EF Code first by fluent API?

Answer

By changing pocos to:

public class Order
{
    public int OrderId { get; set; }
    public virtual Quotation Quotation { get; set; }
}
public class Quotation
{
    public int QuotationId { get; set; }
    public virtual Order Order { get; set; }
}

and using these mapping files:

public class OrderMap : EntityTypeConfiguration<Order>
{
    public OrderMap()
    {
        this.HasOptional(x => x.Quotation)
            .WithOptionalPrincipal()
            .Map(x => x.MapKey("OrderId"));
    }
}

public class QuotationMap : EntityTypeConfiguration<Quotation>
{
    public QuotationMap()
    {
        this.HasOptional(x => x.Order)
            .WithOptionalPrincipal()
            .Map(x => x.MapKey("QuotationId"));
    }
}

we will have this DB(that means 0..1-0..1):
