Multi-async in Entity Framework 6?

asynchronous entity-framework entity-framework-6

Question

This is my code:

var banner = context.Banners.ToListAsync()
var newsGroup = context.NewsGroups.ToListAsync()
await Task.WhenAll(banner, newsGroup);

But when i called the function from controller. It showed error

A second operation started on this context before a previous asynchronous operation completed. Use 'await' to ensure that any asynchronous operations have completed before calling another method on this context. Any instance members are not guaranteed to be thread safe.

Please help me solve this issue.

Accepted Answer

The exception explains clearly that there is only one asynchronous operation per context allowed at a time.

So, you either have to await them one at a time as the error message suggests:

var banner = await context.Banners.ToListAsync();
var newsGroup = await context.NewsGroups.ToListAsync();

Or you can use multiple contexts:

var banner = context1.Banners.ToListAsync();
var newsGroup = context2.NewsGroups.ToListAsync();
await Task.WhenAll(banner, newsGroup);

If you are using IoC container for your Data Provider injection, consider to use "transient" or "PerWebRequest" type for your lifecycle.
