Whereas rolling back the entire transaction doesn't completely match
the behaviour of the embedded driver, I think it's the closest we can
get as long as we're using DRDA. You could take a look at
which solves a similar problem. It is in general very difficult to get
consistent behaviour between embedded and the network client when we
have exceptions generated on the client side during or after execution
of a statement.
