TransactedReceiveScope TransactedReceiveScope TransactedReceiveScope TransactedReceiveScope Class

Definition

An activity which scopes the lifetime of a transaction which is initiated by a received message. The transaction may be flowed into the workflow on the initiating message, or be created by the dispatcher when the message is received.

Examples

The following example shows how to use the TransactedReceiveScope class in a Sequence activity.

return new Sequence
{
    Activities = 
    {
        new WriteLine { Text = "Service workflow begins." },

        new System.ServiceModel.Activities.TransactedReceiveScope
        {
            Variables = { requestMessage, replyMessage },
            Request = receive,
            Body = new Sequence
            {
                Activities =
                {
                    new WriteLine { Text = new InArgument<string>("Server side: Receive complete.") },
                    
                    new WriteLine { Text = new InArgument<string>(new VisualBasicValue<string>() { ExpressionText = "\"Server side: Received = '\" + requestString.toString() + \"'\"" }) },

                    new PrintTransactionInfo(),

                    new Assign<string>
                    {
                        Value = new InArgument<string>("Server side: Sending reply."),
                        To = new OutArgument<string>(replyMessage)
                    },

                    new WriteLine { Text = new InArgument<string>("Server side: Begin reply.") },

                    new SendReply
                    {
                        Request = receive,
                        Content = SendContent.Create(new InArgument<string>(replyMessage)),                                    
                    },

                    new WriteLine { Text = new InArgument<string>("Server side: Reply sent.") },
                },
            },
        },

        new WriteLine { Text = "Server workflow ends." },
    },
};

Remarks

The TransactedReceiveScope activity enables you to control the lifetime of the flowed transaction.

Warning

For an initiating TransactedReceiveScope activity (a TransactedReceiveScope that contains a Receive activity with CanCreateInstance set to true), the transaction is created before the runtime starts to execute the TransactedReceiveScope activity. This transaction is not ambient at the workflow activity layer, but it is ambient in the underlying persistence layers. If execution of the workflow encounters a Persist activity before the TransactedReceiveScope activity, the runtime tries to persist under the ambient transaction. This behavior causes a block until the transaction is completed. Because the workflow execution has not reached the Body section, the transaction cannot finish. This deadlock causes the workflow to stop responding until the transaction times out. When the transaction times out, the newly created instance is aborted.

Important

Whenever you use a TransactedReceiveScope it is recommended to place all Receives in the workflow within TransactedReceiveScope activities.

Important

When using TransactedReceiveScope and messages arrive in the incorrect order, the workflow will be aborted when trying to deliver the first out of order message. You must make sure your workflow is always at a consistent stopping point when the workflow idles. This will allow you to restart the workflow from a previous persistence point should the workflow be aborted.
