TransactionScope and WCF

Post by dvdaniels » Tue 11 Dec 2007 18:40

This is only a question. I am considering purchasing this and replacing the old ODP.NET due to some library issues.

What I need is something that can handle distributed transactions on a wcf service. Where can I find more information about how this product performs in that scenario? Right now odp claims it works using the TransactionScope and MSDTC. I have not been able to confirm it and I am also looking at alternatives to the odp product due to their fascinating support (sarcasm).

Any info, samples or the like would really be appreciated.

OraDirect .NET does not support TransactionScope, MSDTC and distributed transactions. You can work with single transactions using OracleTransaction class.

TransactionScope Support?

Post by peitor » Tue 17 Jun 2008 14:55

When do you plan to support the TransactonScope and MSDTC?

Now we are using OracleClient 9.2 that does NOT support TransactionScope too.

And Oracle Client 10g we cannot install on our Webserver, cause no sidebyside install of 2 clients...

Unfortunately, no time frame is available now.

But there should be no problem on using several Oracle clients on one machine.
