NSaga is a .Net library that helps you working with Sagas. The idea and concepts are similar to other saga implementations (NServiceBus, Rhino Service Bus, Mass Transit). But this implementation is a lot more simple - there is no bus and entry barrier is a lot lower (we hope!). You don't need to rebuild your application around using a bus to have a saga-or-two. Just look through the Quick Start guide and can brush up on other topics later when you have more questions.

Saga?

In case you are wondering, "Saga" here means a long running transaction; some operation that can be complete in multiple steps. The simplest application of saga is a multi-step form on a web-site, where you don't really want to commit intermediate pages of the form, but only care when the form is complete. NSaga will persist intermediate data for you, and once the form is overall complete, saga can be pushed to your domain model. Actually this is how this project was started. There is a page dedicated to explaining the concept.
