Do you know how to implement transactions in Castle ActiveRecord?

I decided to make a system for a client using Castle ActiveRecord, everything went well until I found that the transactions do not work, for instance;

               TransactionScope t = new TransactionScope();


                   //This is just to see transaction working
                   throw new Exception("Exception");  

                   foreach (qfh.Beneficiary b1 in l)

               catch (Exception ex)


But it doesn't work, I throw an Exception just to try the transaction rolls back, but for my surprise I see that the first [Save] records into the database. What is happening?

I'm new on Castle and NHibernate, firstly I saw it very attractive and I decided to go on with it and MySQL (I've never worked with this DB), I tried ActiveWriter and it seemed very promising but after a long and effortly week I see this issue and now I feel like I'm stuck and like I've wasted my time. It is supposed to be easy but right now I'm feeling a frustated cause I cannot find enough information to make this workout, can you help me?

Ben's got it. That doc is a little confusing. Refer to the last block on the page, "Nested transactions".

You need to wrap the code in a session scope, like this:

using(new SessionScope())

I finally fixed, it happened that I was doing wrong, I overrode the Save method of the Member class and made sessionScope inside and inside of it a transaction scope, so when a involved all of that in a transaction scope it saved in the database, so when I threw the exception everything was already saved, I think that's it.

All in all, thanks for the help.
