Hi all,

I have seen psql has implemented a variable called ON_ERROR_ROLLBACK.
"When on, if a statement in a transaction block generates an error,
the error is ignored and the transaction continues." (from the documentation).

I would need the same functionality using JDBC. So I could continue with my batch
insert even if one or more statements fail. Right now I'm committing the transaction
after each insert.

I have thought of the following:

1. Checking constraints before calling insert. (to slow)
2. Creating a user defined savepoint before each insert,
   and rolling back to this savepoint if the insert fails. (not tried yet)

What would you recommend? Is it possible to set ON_ERROR_ROLLBACK for JDBC transactions?
AFAIK other DBMS do let you continue with you transaction if there was in error.
