Xml file mapper using Web Service - How do I create a database transaction across web method calls

Hi all, I am tasked with creating a web service that maps a number of files to a relational database.  I have a good idea of how I might do this but need to make sure that a list of files get mapped to the database or else they are all rolled back.  Here is the scenario of what should happen.

1. Call an initializing method with the list of files to process as a parameter

2. This method would return a unique identifier to the caller

3. Everytime the caller calls a mapping function also pass the identifier as a parameter

4. If a mapping function fails call a rollback function with the same identifier

5. If all files are mapped successfully call a comit function with identifier

 Any great ideas on how to do this?


Thank you

You can create transactions using the sqlclient, pseudo code in VB using sqldatasources:

Dim cmdConnection As System.Data.SqlClient.SqlConnection = New System.Data.SqlClient.SqlConnection(Common.AppSettings.ConnectionString)

Dim transaction As SqlClient.SqlTransaction = cmdConnection.BeginTransaction("processData")

Dim cmd As System.Data.SqlClient.SqlCommand = New System.Data.SqlClient.SqlCommand("storedProcName', cmdConnection, transaction)


      'do a bunch of stuffCatch ex As Exception


Throw ex

End Try

You don't use a commit per se, it commits by default unless an exception is thrown so you'd return something after this try as a response.

web service call failed: 500 using ajax hovermenu and web service with ascx file

Calling a Web Service from a Web Service
Hello,I was looking for some feedback on calling a web service from within a web service. I've heard that it's not good practice (or not possible). I have a scenario where I think it might make some sense.Within our infrastructure, we've created a web service that handles incoming updates on the statuses of all processes. This has proven to be a good thing since it allows applications to communicate across server to make status updates. It's also used by third party developers and applications to communicate with our infrastructure.Along these lines ... we are planning to create a new compon...
