Transaction Class

Represents a transaction.

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

public class Transaction : IDisposable, ISerializable
/** @attribute SerializableAttribute() */ 
public class Transaction implements IDisposable, ISerializable
public class Transaction implements IDisposable, ISerializable
Not applicable.

The System.Transactions namespace provides both an explicit programming model based on the Transaction class, as well as an implicit programming model using the TransactionScope class, in which transactions are automatically managed by the infrastructure. It is highly recommended that you use the easier implicit model for development. To get started, please see the Implement Implicit Transactions using Transaction Scope topic. For more information on writing a transactional application, see Writing A Transactional Application.

The Transaction class contains methods used by developers implementing resource managers for enlistment. It also provides functionalities for cloning a transaction and controlling the current transaction context. You can obtain the current transaction, if one is set, using the static Current property.

This type is thread safe.
