The ScalarDB Cluster .NET Client SDK supports Dependency Injection in frameworks like ASP.NET Core.

You can register the ScalarDB Cluster transaction managers as services in IServiceCollection as follows, replacing <HOSTNAME_OR_IP_ADDRESS> with the FQDN or the IP address, and <PORT> with the port number (60053 by default) of your cluster:

using ScalarDB.Net.Client.Extensions;


var builder = WebApplication.CreateBuilder(args);


builder.Services.AddScalarDbCluster(options =>
    options.Address = "http://<HOSTNAME_OR_IP_ADDRESS>:<PORT>";
    options.HopLimit = 10;
    options.EnableCrud = true; // true by default
    options.EnableSql = true; // false by default
    options.EnableAdmin = true; // false by default

After registering the transaction managers, they can be injected into the controller’s constructor as follows:

public class OrderController: ControllerBase
    private readonly IDistributedTransactionManager _manager;

    public OrderController(IDistributedTransactionManager manager)
        _manager = manager;

Although these examples are for WebApi projects, the examples will work in a similar way in GrpcService projects.

AddScalarDbCluster-specific options

This section describes some specific options for AddScalarDbCluster:

  • EnableCrud: Enables the transaction managers for executing CRUD operations. IDistributedTransactionManager and ITwoPhaseCommitTransactionManager will become available for injection.
  • EnableSql: Enables the transaction managers for executing SQL statements. ISqlTransactionManager and ISqlTwoPhaseCommitTransactionManager will become available for injection.
  • EnableAdmin: Enables the administrative interface. IDistributedTransactionAdmin will become available for injection.
