Subject Multiple queries.
Date Tue, 15 Feb 2005 03:34:11 GMT

I am trying to perform an operation using SqlMaps.  I am performing one
query to get a list of modified rows in one table, then for each row I want
to perform an update or insert on another table within a transaction.  I am
used to transactions only existing when I say they should, so I am using
explicit transactions.

What seems to be occurring is that once the inner transaction starts, the
outer query stops behaving like a cursor and fetches the entire result set
into memory. In one version, SqlMap.startTransaction() complained that
another transaction was already in progress.

So here is a snippet of my current main:
        Date laststart = new GregorianCalendar(2005,0,1,0,0,0).getTime();
        CustomerLinkTask newLinkTask = new CustomerLinkTask(sqlMap, process,
        try {
            sqlMap.queryWithRowHandler("modifiedCustomers", laststart,
        } catch (SQLException e) {
        return 0;
The modifiedCustomers query returns all customers modified since the
timestamp specified.  The sqlMap, and a deadlock retry are passed on to the
CustomerLinkTask.  Here is the handleRow function for the CustomerLinkTask:

    public void handleRow(Object row) {
        Customer customer = (Customer) row;

        try {
        }catch (SQLException e) {

        Investor investor = null;
        investor = getLinkedInvestor(customer);
        if (investor == null) {
            // if the investor is not linked, see if we can find an existing
            investor = findExistingInvestor(customer);
            if (investor == null) {
                // if we can find an existing investor we will need to
create one
                investor = createInvestor(customer);
                createInvestorLink(investor, customer);
            } else {
                // create a link to the investor we found
                createInvestorLink(investor, customer);
                updateInvestor(investor, customer);
        } else {
            // update the linked investor
            updateInvestor(investor, customer);

        process.setLastItem(process.getLastItem() + 1);
        try {
        } catch (SQLException e) {
        } finally {
            try {
            } catch (SQLException e) {

getLinkedInvestor and findExistingInvestor are queries, createInvestor,
createInvestorLink and updateInvestor insert or update the database and
should be within a transaction.

When I have done similar things in perl with DBI, I opened multiple
connections to the database. However, when I tried using connections
(SqlMapClient.openConnection()), I did not get two independent connections
to the database.

Am I approaching this wrong?  I cannot have the transaction started outside
the rowHandler, as I expect to process 1.4 million rows. Much to large for a
single transaction.
