I Hate This Code

time to read 1 min | 170 words

I'm trying to run a SqlBulkCopy operation as a part of NHibernate transaction, and it is not going so well. It wants to either start its own transaction, or join an existing one. The problem is that I don't have access to the real transaction in NHibernate, it is wrapped away.

Here is how I finally solved the issue:


private SqlTransaction GetTransaction(ISession session)


    using(IDbCommand command = session.Connection.CreateCommand())



        return command.Transaction as SqlTransaction;




Ugly, but it seems to be working.
