- Optimistic concurrency in MongoDB using.NET and C#
That may be fine for bank transfers, but it typically falls down in the face of disconnected models used by almost all ORMs such as Entity Framework. Frameworks such as Entity Framework have optimistic concurrency control built in (although it may be turned off). Basically there are three steps: Get an entity from the DB and disconnect. The only thing you need to do to use this library in your apps is to implement this interface on all top-level MongoDB entities and use a class derived from ConcurrentDataContext (in library below) for your data access.

First, if you’re unfamiliar with NuGet, it’s basically “add reference” to external software projects (typically open source ones such as jQuery, but also for Microsoft ones such as Entity Framework). Here’s a quick post on how and why you want to consider using NuGet package restore. You definitely need to check out David Ebbo’s post introducing it. NuGet will change the way you develop.
