All related changes to objects in the database within an edit session should be grouped into edit operations. An edit operation is begun using the StartEditOperation method. An edit operation may be thought of as a short transaction nested within the long transaction corresponding to the edit session.

All edits to features that participate in a Topology or Geometric Network must be bracketed within an edit operation.

When using StartEditOperation, proper handling of errors, including the use of AbortEditOperation, is neccessary.
