SubmitChanges() doesn't work properly inside foreach RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am trying to call SubmitChanges() inside foreach statment that suppose to insert records into SQL server data base.Once SubmitChanges() throws exception (for example :Binary data would be trancated bla bla bla ... ) the next statements keeps to  throw same exception and the only solution that helps is to activate Dispose() function on my datacontext object and recreate it.Creating a new instance of the DataContext for each unit of work can lead to a performance degradation.So the question is how can I keep inserting data  without recreating data context.The following is my code:

    datacontext = new SwapDBDataContext();

    (DataRow ro in ds.Tables[0].Rows){try{

    city = new sh_city();

    city.city_code = ro["CITY_CODE"].ToString();

    city.city_ename = ro["CITY_ENAME"].ToString();

    city.city_name = ro["CITY_NAME"].ToString();





    catch (Exception ex)



    Logger.logError("", ex);

    datacontext = new SwapDBDataContext();

  • The best practice is to use a separate DataContext for each unit of work.  However, you ought to be able to consider the entire set of inserts as a single unit of work.  Can you call SubmitChanges only once outside the foreach loop after you've called InsertOnSubmit for each one?
