Java – Does a single database record insert fail need to be rolled back?

Does a single database record insert fail need to be rolled back?… here is a solution to the problem.

Does a single database record insert fail need to be rolled back?

I’m not very familiar with database transactions. I would like to know about inserting a single record into the database. Whether a transaction is required. If so, do you need to roll back if inserting a record fails?

I’m asking JDBC-related questions, but can be in the general database sense.

Solution

From the documentation:

  1. Statement-Level Rollback

    Statement-Level Rollback
    If at any time during execution a SQL statement causes an error, all effects of the statement are rolled back. The effect of the rollback is as if that statement had never been run. This operation is a statement-level rollback.

  2. Statement-Level Atomicity

    Statement-Level Atomicity
    Oracle Database supports statement-level atomicity, which means that a SQL statement is an atomic unit of work and either completely succeeds or completely fails.

Therefore, if you only

execute the only insert statement and it fails, you do not need to roll back.
