Not applicable.

Exception typeCondition

Exception

An error occurred while trying to commit the transaction.

InvalidOperationException

The transaction has already been committed or rolled back.

-or-

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.

Public Sub RunOracleTransaction(ByVal connectionString As String)
    Using connection As New OracleConnection(connectionString)
        connection.Open()

        Dim command As OracleCommand = connection.CreateCommand()
        Dim transaction As OracleTransaction

        ' Start a local transaction
        transaction = connection.BeginTransaction(IsolationLevel.ReadCommitted)
        ' Assign transaction object for a pending local transaction
        command.Transaction = transaction

        Try
            command.CommandText = _
                "INSERT INTO Dept (DeptNo, Dname, Loc) values (50, 'TECHNOLOGY', 'DENVER')"
            command.ExecuteNonQuery()
            command.CommandText = _
                "INSERT INTO Dept (DeptNo, Dname, Loc) values (60, 'ENGINEERING', 'KANSAS CITY')"
            command.ExecuteNonQuery()
            transaction.Commit()
            Console.WriteLine("Both records are written to database.")
        Catch e As Exception
            transaction.Rollback()
            Console.WriteLine(e.ToString())
            Console.WriteLine("Neither record was written to database.")
        End Try
    End Using
End Sub
