Instantiate a new HashDatabase object and open the database represented by Filename.

Namespace:  BerkeleyDB
Assembly:  libdb_dotnet52 (in libdb_dotnet52.dll) Version:


public static HashDatabase Open(
	string Filename,
	HashDatabaseConfig cfg
Visual Basic (Declaration)
Public Shared Function Open ( _
	Filename As String, _
	cfg As HashDatabaseConfig _
) As HashDatabase
Visual C++
static HashDatabase^ Open(
	String^ Filename, 
	HashDatabaseConfig^ cfg


Type: System..::.String
The name of an underlying file that will be used to back the database. In-memory databases never intended to be preserved on disk may be created by setting this parameter to null.
Type: BerkeleyDB..::.HashDatabaseConfig
The database's configuration

Return Value

A new, open database object


If Filename is null, the database is strictly temporary and cannot be opened by any other thread of control, thus the database can only be accessed by sharing the single database object that created it, in circumstances where doing so is safe.

If AutoCommit is set, the operation will be implicitly transaction protected. Note that transactionally protected operations on a datbase object requires the object itself be transactionally protected during its open.
