NuGet package with multiple projects

Before some day one of my friend asked me to install NuGet in project another then startup project. At that time I don’t have any idea about it. So I did some R and D on web and found one easiest way to do it. So let’s first create a solution where we have more then one project in single solution. I have created a new solution and create three project in single solution as below.
  1. MyApplication- Main web application project.
  2. MyApplication.Business- This project contains all business logic classes of application
  3. MyApplication.Data- This project contains all data access layers classes of application
Its looks like following.
