At the beginning of this month, I began a challenging contest to integrate Castle Project transaction support into the "enterprise" NHibernate sample code found at http://www.codeproject.com/aspnet/NHibernateBestPractices.asp. Although a number of people worked on the challenge, a solution was not submitted meeting the required goals of the challenge. (The primary goal being to wrap the "update" method within the presenter within a transaction; see the challenge details for specifics.) Special mention goes to Henrik Feldt for submitting a solution closest to meeting the requirements of the contest. But for now, the prize is still available. Since a number of people have expressed continued interest in working on this challenge, I am extending the contest until the end of June to accept additional entries.
As a helpful tip, in order to have the presenter managed by the Castle Project's Automatic Transaction Management facility, the presenter will need to be wrapped by the Windsor container. Consequently, the presenter will need to be created via dependency injection vs. calling "new" within the code itself.
Still up for grabs is...
Essential Windows Workflow Foundation

Good luck and thanks for the continued interest!
