SQLite Transactions

SQLite Transactions

shape Description

SQLite Transactions coherent group of tasks that consists of more than SQLite proclamations.A SQLite transaction is a nuclear unit. The impact of each SQLite proclamations in SQLite Transactions can be either connected to the database or fixed from the database.

SQLite Transactions starts by the principle of executing SQLite proclamations. And a transaction closures after rolled back or commit, either determinately by the ROLLBACK or COMMIT verifiable while a DDL proclamations or proclamations is announced.

These transaction can be easily outlined by examining a database related to banking. At that point, the bank customer exchanges cash against an investment account to a financial record,the exchange can comprise of three isolated functions.

Properties of a transactions

shape Description

A transaction contain 4 ACID Properties such as:


Checks whether all the tasks allocated to a unit are concluded auspiciously or not, if not concluded the transaction will be interrupt at appropriate mark of failure and preceding activities will be rolled back to actual state.


Gives any accurate changes inside the database states upon a effectively committed transaction.


Empowers a transactions to create it translucent and individually to exclusive others.


Establish that the conclusion or consequence of a transaction endure that is committed in the case of server break down.

Structure of transactions

shape Description

A transaction comprises of more than one explanation. In particular, a transaction comprises of DML statements that together establish a nuclear difference in the database, and other comprises of DDL statement. The transaction consisting of a beginning and an end point.

Beginning of a transaction

When the main executable SQLite statement is experienced than the transaction starts. SQLite proclamations are the SQLite explanations that creates signal to a database for occurrence, including DDL and DML statements and the set of transaction explanations. At that point, when a transaction starts, Database of Oracle relegates the accessible fix information portion of a transaction to record the fix sections for the updated transaction. And a transaction ID is not designated until an undo segment and transaction table space are dispensed, which happens during the main DML articulations. It contains unique Transaction ID and produce the release section number, space, and arrangement number.

End of a transaction

And a ends transaction take place when one of the condition occurs.

  • When client trouble shoots Commit or Roll back proclamation beyond  Save points conditions.
  • Client execute a DDL summon, for example, Rename, Drop, Create or Alter.
  • A client exits regularly from the Database tools and instrumental mechanism,creating the present transaction
  • To be certainly bounded the confer conduct during the client detaches is operation-subordinate and configurable
  • A user procedure ends unusually, bringing the transaction to a verifiable stage and moved back, and utilizing metadata put away as a part of the exchange table and then fix the fragment.

Commit transaction

shape Description

Committing a transaction implies rolling out lasting the improvements operated by the SQLite proclamations inside the transaction. Information is conferred, before a transaction changes the following actions taking place.

  • It develop a fix data. This fix data consists of the old information esteems changed by the SQLite statements with in the transaction.
  • It creates a re-try section in the redo log support of the SGA. The re-try log record consists of the information piece and the roll-back piece. Before a transaction is committed the progressions might flow into the disk.
  • The progressions will performed in the database cradles of the SGA. And these progressions might flow into the disk before an transaction is conferred.

When committing a SQLite Transactions, the following conditions occurs:

Rollback of Transactions

shape Description

Rolling back means fixing any progressions to information which are performed by SQLite articulations inside of the uncommitted exchange. SQLite utilizes fix table spaces to store previous esteems. The retry log contains records of changes. SQLite Transactions gives a chance to roll back the whole uncommitted transaction. On the other hand, it can also move the uncommitted exchange by back trailing to a marker called a Save Point. A wide range of roll backs utilize the same strategies.

  • Statement-level roll back
  • Rollback of a transaction due to client desire.
  • Rollback to a savepoint.
  • Rollback of incomplete transactions during reconstruction.
  • Rollback of all dominant transactions separated.
  • Rollback of a transaction due to abnormal actions consequences.


shape Key Points

  • SQLite Transactions – Logical unit of work which contains SQLite statements.
  • Commit – Making permanent changes performed in the database.
  • Roll back – Roll back means returning to previous state.
