Two modes of transactions are available:
If Teradata Transaction-semantics are used, three types of transactions differ in the way an application identifies which statements share the all-or-none property. All three methods back out all statements if any statement fails:
- Explicit (user-generated)- Precedes the statements by a BEGIN TRANSACTION statement and follows them with an END TRANSACTION statement.
- Implicit - Submits the statements as a single request.
- Two-phase commit - The action depends on CICS or IMS sync point services to commit or roll back transactions. The use of the sync point services guarantees that all updates performed within a logical unit of work will either all commit or all roll back.
