I don't understand your scenario.  The uncommitted work is done by the application client??

I don't recommend ever calling setAutoCommit from an application.  If you are outside a jta
transaction, you presumably want autocommit behavior.  If you don't, use UserTransaction.

Some drivers (including, last time I checked, oracle) are not jdbc spec compliant and do not
commit pending work when autocommit is turned on (the tranql wrapper uses setAutocommit(true)
to end transactions when wrapping non-xa connections/datasources).  To counteract this defect
there's a property CommitOnAutocommit you can use with the generic wrapper.  I recommend using
a db-specific wrapper where this problem should be taken care of.

in the database table. This good scenario is not working. Only after this works successfully,
I will try for thr roll back scenario. Has anybody seen a simialr situation? Any workarounds??
