JDBC and Rollbacks with Savepoints
Posted by: Carsten Bühler ()

I got a problem rollback changes over my JDBC-connection. I am not using any super-user and the Tables are of engine=innoDB.

Problem ist, that after a failure in executeBatch no rollbakc can be done, because the savepoint cant be found.

### I forgot: Many thanks in advance.

Here are some fragments of my code:

Connection conn = DatabaseConnection.getConnection();
Statement stmt = null;

Savepoint sp = null;

try {


try {
sp = conn.setSavepoint("sp1");
} catch (SQLException e) {
log.error("Error creating savepoint: ", e);


while ((str = in.readLine()) != null) {

if (log.isDebugEnabled())
log.debug("#SQL-Statement: " + str);



result = stmt.executeBatch();


} catch (BatchUpdateException e) {
try {
log.error("Error in SQL-Script: ",e);
if (sp!=null) {
log.debug("Doing rollback with SavePoint.");
else {
log.debug("Doing normal rollback without SavePoint.");
return false;
} catch (Exception te) {
log.debug("Rollback konnte nicht durchgeführt werden! ", te);
catch (Exception ex) {
log.error("Script: " + filePath + " was not able to be commited to database!");
log.error("ExecuteDatabaseScript: ", ex);
return false;
} finally {
try {
if (sp!=null && conn!=null) conn.releaseSavepoint(sp);
} catch (SQLException e) {
log.error("Error releasing savepoint: ", e);
