.NET Transactional File Manager Migrated to GitHub

I have migrated the .NET Transactional File Manager project to GitHub from CodePlex. I originally wrote about it in this blog post.

The library allows you do enlist file I/O operations in transactions using System.Transactions. For example you can wrap a SQL Server insert and creation of a new file on disk in the same transaction, and commit or rollback the two operations together as a unit.

Example code:

// Wrap a file copy and a database insert in the same transaction
TxFileManager fileMgr = new TxFileManager();
using (TransactionScope scope1 = new TransactionScope())
{
    // Copy a file
    fileMgr.CopyFile(srcFileName, destFileName);

    // Insert a database record
    dbMgr.ExecuteNonQuery(insertSql);

    scope1.Complete();
}

This library is available as a NuGet package.

dotnet add package TxFileManager

Version 1.4 is now available with the following changes/fixes:

  • Convert to xUnit tests
  • Add support for custom temp paths to address issues with file/dir operations accross filesystems
  • Fix for resource leak in TxFileManager._txEnlistment
  • Target .NET Standard 2.0
  • Additional testing for .NET Core on Ubuntu
  • Additional stress testing both on Windows and Ubuntu
  • Created Github workflow to automatically build/test on ubuntu
  • Added FxCop static analysis
