Lesser-Known NHibernate Features: Future Queries

AddThis Social Bookmark Button
Sometimes it makes sense to send several queries at the same time to the database server. This prevents multiple roundtrips and normally can provide results faster. Knowing this, NHibernate offers two features: multiqueries and future queries. Future queries build upon multiqueries and because they use LINQ, which is probably the most common querying API in NHibernate, I will focus in this.In order to use future queries, you queue them, by calling the ToFuture() or ToFutureValue() extension methods on any number of queries that you wish to retrieve together:
none; width: 97.5%; text-align: left; line-height: 12pt; overflow: auto; font-family: "Courier New", courier, monospace; font-size: 8pt; cursor: text; direction: ltr; max-height: 200px; background-color: rgb(244, 244, 244);"> 1: var futureProducts = session.Query().Where(p => p.Price > 1000).ToFuture();
