I have discovered that the system on which this test was
conducted had a 7.1 PostgreSQL postmaster/ backend,
and not 7.2.1, The application was developed, built,
and tested on a 7.2.1 system, so it is (now, in hindsight)
no surprise that funny things happened with a 7.2.1
application trying to work with a 7.1 backend.

I am still curious, though, as to how/ when/ in what
context "notifications" from the backend are delivered
to an ECPG application?

I have some ECPG based error recovery functions
that can issue explicit  BEGIN and ROLLBACK or COMMIT
on a blind basis under some conditions. That is, BEGIN
can sometimes be issued while already in a transaction,
and  ROLLBACK or COMMIT can sometimes be issued
while not in a transaction.

It seems that I sometimes get the resulting


as the sqlca.sqlcode report in my *next* INSERT/
UPDATE/ SELECT/ FETCH, rather than in sqlca.sqlcode
for the BEGIN/ ROLLBACK/COMMIT command?

Is this possible?

I am not doing anything on an asynchronous basis, at least
not on purpose. If it *is* possible, how do I tell when the
sqlca.sqlcode response for the INSERT/ UPDATE/SELECT/
FETCH command has arrived? What should I do with the
NOTICE (apparently coming from the earlier BEGIN/
ROLLBACK/COMMIT) other than log it?
