Don't use BEGIN and COMMIT within JDBC. To do this, you use the
setAutoCommit() method in the Connection to enable transactions.

Although your code works at the moment, technically we should wrap all
statements with their own BEGIN ... COMMIT statements while AutoCommit
is true (which is the default).

As for the catch() block, the Connection interface has the method that
needs to be called to ABORT the transaction.

I want to execute multiple SQL commands (also insert,updates and selects
) in a transaction block.

Is the following coding style correct ?

Statement st;
ResultSet rs;

try {
  st.executeUpdate("INSERT INTO ...");
  st.executeUpdate("DELETE FROM ...");
  rs = st.executeQuery("SELECT FROM ...");
  if (rs != null) {
     while ( ) {
       // do different things
  st.executeUpdate("UPDATE ...");
  st.executeUpdate("COMMIT TRANSACTION");
} catch (SQLException sqle) {

What I want to know : is there necessary to do a st.executeUpdate("ABORT
TRANSACTION") in the catch instruction block ?
I recall that someone says that an error inside a transaction block
automatically aborts the transaction.
Is it true ? It works here ?

For other databases it might be necessary to do that.
Then, the st.executeUpdate("ABORT"); must be included also in another
try..catch block, true ?

Thanks a lot,
