WebMethodAttribute Constructor (Boolean, TransactionOption)

Initializes a new instance of the WebMethodAttribute class.

Namespace:  System.Web.Services
Assembly:  System.Web.Services (in System.Web.Services.dll)

public WebMethodAttribute(
	bool enableSession,
	TransactionOption transactionOption
)

Parameters

enableSession
Type: System.Boolean

Initializes whether session state is enabled for the XML Web service method.

transactionOption
Type: System.EnterpriseServices.TransactionOption

Initializes the transaction support of an XML Web service method.

A web service call can only be the root of a transaction, due to the stateless nature of the HTTP protocol. This means that the following two settings are equivalent, with each call creating a new transaction:

[WebMethod(TransactionOption = TransactionOption.Required)]
[WebMethod(TransactionOption = TransactionOption.RequiresNew)]

It also means that all the following settings are equivalent; meaning no transaction support:

[WebMethod] // TransactionOption.Disabled is the default
[WebMethod(TransactionOption = TransactionOption.Disabled)]
[WebMethod(TransactionOption = Transaction.NotSupported)]
[WebMethod(TransactionOption = Transaction.Supported)]

<%@ WebService Language="C#" Class="Bank"%>
<%@ assembly name="System.EnterpriseServices,Version=1.0.3300.0,Culture=neutral,PublicKeyToken=b03f5f7f11d50a3a" %>

public class Bank : WebService 
{

    [ WebMethod(true,TransactionOption.RequiresNew) ]
    public void Transfer(long Amount, long AcctNumberTo, long AcctNumberFrom)  
    { 
        MyCOMObject objBank = new MyCOMObject();

        if (objBank.GetBalance(AcctNumberFrom) < Amount )
            // Explicitly end the transaction.
            ContextUtil.SetAbort();
        else 
        {
            // The Credit and Debit methods explictly determine, in their
            // own code, whether to commit or end the transaction.
            objBank.Credit(Amount, AcctNumberTo);
            objBank.Debit(Amount, AcctNumberFrom);
        }
    }
}
