Subject Re: SqlSession question
Date Mon, 08 Mar 2010 19:33:28 GMT
The only rationale there is to allow for you to commit more than once within
a session scope.  In previous versions of iBATIS this was possible, but was
messy because Session, Transaction and Batches were all managed separately.
 Because we've now merged all three into this one concept, we didn't want to
lose the ability to commit multiple times within a session.

Of course, I highly recommend committing only once and using broadly scoped
transactions as possible.  But that recommendation has little to do with
iBATIS specifically.  :-)
