Windows SIG: Transactions for the Common Service



  • SDForum Windows SIG and Bay.NET are holding a joint event in October.

    Come hear Juval Lowy, principal of IDesign, talk about using .NET 3.5 and WCF in this highly technical presentation in his inimitable style.

    Topic: Transactions for the Common Service

    Transactional programming has traditionally been the privilege of database-centric applications. Other types of applications did not benefit easily from this superior programming model.  In addition, transactional programming has always required per-call objects, which is a non-trivial programming model.  But wouldn’t it be great if you could preserve the programming model of regular objects and still benefit from transactions?

    The session starts by briefly discussing the problem space transactions address and the motivation for using them.  It then discusses the WCF approach for instance management in the face of transactions and how you could leverage the support in .NET 3.5 for the context binding and durable services to enable any common service (or a class) to benefit from transactions, without compromising on either the programming model of state-full objects or on the transactional semantics.
