We are currently using your ADO.NET dataprovider for Oracle (v to connect to our Oracle database (v

We are trying to implement transactions using the System.Transactions.TransactionScope which is new in .NET Framework 2.0. However, we are not able to get this working. Is there any sample code for C# 2.0 that you can provide to get us started?

Thanks in advance.

OraDirect .NET does not support TransactionScope now. We will investigate this functionality in the future

It appears that the current version (4.75) still doesn't support TransactionScope. Are there any plans to add this anytime soon?

Need to know

If there is no support for TransactionScope, what is the recommended way of doing transactions with this product?
Thanks ... Ed

TransactionScope will be supported in OraDirect .NET version 5.0. Now we recommend to use OracleConnection.BeginTransaction().

Sounds good. Do you have a timeline for when 5.0 is likely to be available?
Thanks ... Ed
