Can anyone recommend a good book or online resource to learn about handling transactions in VB.Net?
Im a novice to transaction management and need to understand the concepts and subsequently learn about the new system.transactions namespace in .Net 2.0 WRT VB.Net 2005.

I heard about the Professional VB.Net Transactions book from Wrox but Im told it is now dated since it pertains to Fwk 1.0.
any suggestions anyone?

    Hi maralans

    Thank you for your reply,  I've looked at those two resources before but Im looking for something that is easier to follow and explains the concepts a little better with examples in VB.Net so I can learn as I code. In short something more at a beginner level with regard to coding to handle transactions.

    The two links you provided are a little daunting in that they assume a lot of prior experience and knowledge about the DTC or knowledge about transaction management in COM. They would be great for me to expand on once I have mastered the basics.

    I found this excellent book by Sahil Malik called - Pro ADO.NET 2.0.
    It is an Appress Publication and can be found at
    Chaptyer 11 - Transactions - is an excellent introduction to transactions and takes you from knowing nothing about transactions to writing some really cool distributed transaction code.

    Marlans I now see understand the information in the the links you sent me.
    Thanks for your help.
