Why can not he get the child ID right away?


I've been struggling with this for 2 days now so i thought i would give it a shot here.

my scenario looks like this. i got a Customer and CustomerPhone. Now i save the Customer and CustomerPhone at the same time but the CustomerPhone doesn't get Id right away. but if i do a redirect to a other site and get the Customer object there the CustomerPhone will have a Id.

my code for the the classes look like this.

public virtual int Id { get; private set; }
    public virtual string Name { get; set; }
    public virtual string OrgNumber { get; set; }
    public virtual DateTime? CreateDate { get; set; }
    public virtual bool Active { get; set; }
    public virtual string Email { get; set; }

    public virtual IList<CustomerPhone> CustomerPhones { get; set; }

    public Customer()
        CustomerPhones = new List<CustomerPhone>();

    public virtual void AddCustomerPhones(CustomerPhone customerPhone)
        customerPhone.Customer = this;

I use fluent nhibernate for the mapping, but I have had it looked at and it doesn't seem to be the problem.

If you have any thoughts on this please write because this is causing big problems for me.

It is because your session is probably request based. So at the end of your Request, it flushes automatically. Without flushing, your stuff just sits in the Nhib session, and is not added to the DB, hence it not having Id's that are generated IN the db. (I assume you are using identity for the primary keys)

Flush it manually and you will have the Ids.
