Transaction.EnlistVolatile Method (IEnlistmentNotification, EnlistmentOptions)

Enlists a volatile resource manager that supports two phase commit to participate in a transaction.

Namespace:  System.Transactions
Assembly:  System.Transactions (in System.Transactions.dll)

Public Function EnlistVolatile ( _
	enlistmentNotification As IEnlistmentNotification, _
	enlistmentOptions As EnlistmentOptions _
) As Enlistment


Type: System.Transactions.IEnlistmentNotification

An object that implements the IEnlistmentNotification interface to receive two phase commit notifications.

Type: System.Transactions.EnlistmentOptions

EnlistDuringPrepareRequired if the resource manager wants to perform additional work during the prepare phase.

Return Value

Type: System.Transactions.Enlistment
An Enlistment object that describes the enlistment.

Volatile resource managers cannot recovery from failure to complete a transaction in which they were participating. To obtain a durable enlistment in a transaction, use the EnlistDurable method. For more information on volatile and durable resources, as well as how to enlist a resource, see Implementing A Resource Manager. For more information on how a resource manager responds to commit notification and prepare the commit, see Committing A Transaction In Single-Phase and Multi-Phase.

Resource managers enlisted for participation in a transaction through this method receive two phase commit notifications that correspond to the methods defined on the IEnlistmentNotification interface.

The following example shows an implementation of IEnlistmentNotification interface, as well as enlisting the object as a participant in a transaction using the EnlistVolatile method.

		Public Shared Sub Main()
				Using scope As TransactionScope = New TransactionScope()

					'Create an enlistment object 
					Dim myEnlistmentClass As New EnlistmentClass

					'Enlist on the current transaction with the enlistment object
					Transaction.Current.EnlistVolatile(myEnlistmentClass, EnlistmentOptions.None)

					'Perform transactional work here. 

					'Call complete on the TransactionScope based on console input 
					Dim c As ConsoleKeyInfo
					While (True)
						Console.Write("Complete the transaction scope? [Y|N] ")
						c = Console.ReadKey()
						If (c.KeyChar = "Y") Or (c.KeyChar = "y") Then
							Exit While 
						ElseIf ((c.KeyChar = "N") Or (c.KeyChar = "n")) Then 
							Exit While 
						End If 
					End While 
				End Using 
			Catch ex As TransactionException
				Console.WriteLine("Cannot complete transaction")
			End Try 
		End Sub 
	End Class 

	Public Class EnlistmentClass
		Implements IEnlistmentNotification

		Public Sub Prepare(ByVal myPreparingEnlistment As PreparingEnlistment) Implements System.Transactions.IEnlistmentNotification.Prepare
			Console.WriteLine("Prepare notification received")

			'Perform transactional work 
			'If work finished correctly, reply with prepared
		End Sub 

		Public Sub Commit(ByVal myEnlistment As Enlistment) Implements System.Transactions.IEnlistmentNotification.Commit
			Console.WriteLine("Commit notification received")

			'Do any work necessary when commit notification is received 

			'Declare done on the enlistment
		End Sub 

		Public Sub Rollback(ByVal myEnlistment As Enlistment) Implements System.Transactions.IEnlistmentNotification.Rollback
			Console.WriteLine("Rollback notification received")

			'Do any work necessary when rollback notification is received 

			'Declare done on the enlistment
		End Sub 

		Public Sub InDoubt(ByVal myEnlistment As Enlistment) Implements System.Transactions.IEnlistmentNotification.InDoubt
			Console.WriteLine("In doubt notification received")

			'Do any work necessary when indout notification is received 

			'Declare done on the enlistment
		End Sub 
	End Class
