Code Examples
Python - Rollback a Transaction on an Exception
# This example will use a for-loop to run multiple queries in a single Transaction, and rollback if an error occurs. 

# Create some variables for use later
txId = system.db.beginTransaction(timeout=5000)
status=2
query = "UPDATE MachineStatus SET status=? WHERE ID=?"
errors = False 	# A flag to denote if we ran into a problem with a query during the transaction

for machineId in range(8):  
	try:		
		system.db.runPrepUpdate(query,	args=[status, machineId], tx=txId)		
	except:
		errors = True	
		break
# If we encountered an error...
if errors:
	# ...then rollback the transaction
	system.db.rollbackTransaction(txId)
else:
	# Otherwise, commit it
	system.db.commitTransaction(txId)
# In either case, close the transaction when we're done. 
system.db.closeTransaction(txId)
