Subject Re: Help with what "commitRequired=true" param means
Date Tue, 10 Jun 2008 14:03:56 GMT
Here's extract from iBatis docs:

*Normally iBATIS will not commit transactions unless an insert, update, or
delete operation has been
performed. This is true even if you explicitly call the commitTransaction()
method. This behavior
creates problems in some cases. If you want iBATIS to always commit
transactions, even if no insert,
update, or delete operation has been performed, then set the value of the
commitRequired attribute to true.
Examples of where this attribute is useful include:
    1.   If you call a stored procedures that updates data as well as
returning rows. In that case you would
         call the procedure with the queryForList() operation – so iBATIS
would not normally commit the
         transaction. But then the updates would be rolled back.
    2.   In a WebSphere environment when you are using connection pooling
and you use the JNDI
         <dataSource> and the JDBC or JTA transaction manager. WebSphere
requires all transactions on
         pooled connections to be committed or the connection will not be
returned to the pool.
Note that the commitRequired attribute has no effect when using the EXTERNAL
transaction manager.
So it does not explain why your transactions are not commited with
commitRequired=false if you do call commitTransactio() after
insert/update/delete (and I think you do not care about commiting after

Could you provide sample transaction code from your app which you suspect
does not commit ?
