I have faced the same problem using the generic adapter which got solved on setting CommitBeforeAutCommit to true. The commits used to happen on shutting down the app or the server though.
I don't have experience with the Oracle Adapter. Can you log the commits on
the Oracle side to see if any commits come through? I had a similar problem
with MaxDB and it seems that the transactions are not closed because the
JDBC driver for MaxDB did no commit on the connection if the AutoCommit was
switched from false to true. The JDBC spec says if the value changed the
connection must be commited but the driver does not. Thats why I use
Can you try to use the generic adapter to connect to Oracle and see if it
