Transaction in MTS

Transaction in MTS

Transaction in MTS

I have one basic doubt about MTS. MTS aborts the transaction if one of the transaction fails. I'm trying to understand this logic. Consider I have 2 com objects com1.dll and com2.dll. My ASP page calls some method in com1.dll and then calls some method in com2.dll. I was wondering whether MTS aborts method in com1.dll if method in com2.dll fails. I really appreciate some response.


RE: Transaction in MTS

Yes, if the method in object 2 calls the SetAbort method on the ObjectContext object, the entire transaction is blown away.  

When several objects participate in a transaction, any one of them can vote to abort the transaction.  Only if they all vote to commit (call SetComplete) will the transaction go through.
