Represents a transaction to be performed at a data source, and is implemented by .NET Framework data providers that access relational databases.
Assembly: System.Data (in System.Data.dll)
The interface allows an inheriting class to implement a Transaction class, which represents the transaction to be performed at a data source. For more information about Transaction classes, see Transactions and Concurrency (ADO.NET).
An application does not create an instance of the interface directly, but creates an instance of a class that inherits .
Classes that inherit must implement the inherited members, and typically define additional members to add provider-specific functionality. For example, the interface defines the Commit method. In turn, the OleDbTransaction class inherits this property, and also defines the Begin method.Notes to Implementers:
To promote consistency among .NET Framework data providers, name the inheriting class in the form Prv Transaction where Prv is the uniform prefix given to all classes in a specific .NET Framework data provider namespace. For example, Sql is the prefix of the SqlTransaction class in the System.Data.SqlClient namespace.
