virtual void Rollback () override

Exception typeCondition


An error occurred while trying to commit the transaction.


The transaction has already been committed or rolled back.


The connection is broken.

The transaction can be rolled back only from a pending state (after BeginTransaction has been called, but before Commit is called).

The following example creates an OracleConnection and an OracleTransaction. It also demonstrates how to use the BeginTransaction, Commit, and Rollback methods.
