We have using SnapDevelop quite successfully on a project where the middle tier connects to an Oracle database.


I have a process that is run from an Oracle procedure that takes about 30 seconds to complete if run from within Toad or another SQL tool.

It has 2 input parameters and 2 output parameters.  When I execute it using the code below, I get a ORA-01013 error

which usually indicates a timeout.  We have our connection timeout in the connection string set to 60 secs and theis is still timing out after about 30


           var procedureName = "TEST_SHIP";

            var idParam = ParamValue.New<string>("I_SHO_ID", i_sho_id);
            var idParam2 = ParamValue.New<string>("I_REM_NUMBER", i_dummy_p);


            // The parameter 'Name' is Output type.
            var nameParam = ParamValue.New<string>("O_NOTIF_ERROR_STATUS", ParameterDirection.Output);
            var nameParam2 = ParamValue.New<string>("O_NOTIF_MESSAGE", ParameterDirection.Output);

            // Executes the SQL statement and gets the department by nameParam.
            _dataContext.SqlExecutor.ExecuteProcedure(procedureName, idParam, idParam2, nameParam, nameParam2);

            o_success_failure = nameParam.Value.ToString();

            o_message = nameParam2.Value.ToString();


Has anyone else run into this?  I can provide more detail if questions come in

Hi Miller,

Have you ever modified the IDataContextOptions.CommandTimeout property when instantiating the Oracle DataContext? It's 30 by default, so please set this option to 60 and try again.

Regards, Logan

Hi Logan.  Thank you for your response.  Is this something different than modifying the  CONNECTION TIMEOUT in the connection string ?

 Could you give me some idea of where to go to access this property ?

Thanks to Logan, I figured this out. The line below solved my problem

_dataContext.ContextOptions.CommandTimeout = 60;

Here is some of our code to instantiate that

public abstract class ServiceBase : IServiceBase


protected readonly DbDataContext _dataContext;

protected ServiceBase(DbDataContext dataContext)


_dataContext = dataContext;
