    I've just watched the video "Managing the OpenAccess ORM Context in ASP.Net Webforms Applications".

    Can someone, ideally using short words (I'm not that bright) tell me the pros and cons of each option?

    I can see the advantages and disadvantages of the MasterPage approach, but why should I choose with of the other methods over it? Or either of them over the other?

    Curious of Grantham.

    Hi Stuart,

          Using the approach the ContextFactory pattern can lead to problems related to the key calculation in 64bit environment and disposing of resources issues. 
           Master page is better approach because it will be created, used and disposed in page’s lifecycle. This will avoid all possible resource issues related to their disposing.
           Best approach which you could use is short-living context. In this scenario a context instance is being created, used and disposed only when it is needed.
    Hope that helps.
