Subject RE: Torque Connection pool .. ORA- 01453 - Set Transaction must be the first statement
Date Mon, 27 Mar 2006 21:21:05 GMT
I did a quick wander thru the Torque code and saw one thing
that did not look right to me.  Here's some background first:

All of the Torque Transaction handling is built on the 
Transaction class. This is used primarily by the BasePeer 
methods like doUpdate(Criteria) and the like.  

These methods are the ones that automatically wrap the
DB actions as a transaction with rollback.

The first thing that didn't look right to me was that the
Transaction.beginOptional(dbName, useTransaction) method
is called with the useTransaction arg set to the value of
criteria.isUseTransation().  This value is set to false by

So, it seems that if you don't set this explicitly on your 
Criteria, you are not using really using transactions but
you still have the Transaction try/catch code with commits and

Shouldn't the default for isUseTransactions() be true and/or 
the code handle the false condition without calling the 
extra transaction methods?
