In sybase (TSQL),"BEGIN TRANSACTION" and "COMMIT TRANSACTION" is used for transaction control.
Are these two statements valid for Oracle, Informix or any other DB also?
Actually the problem is that for managing transcations I was using JDBC methods - setAutoCommit(),rollback() and commit(). But it caused some conflict with stored procedure setting. The DBA is asking me to use "BEGIN TRANSACTION" and "COMMIT TRANSACTION" instead.
Statement.executeUpdate("BEGIN TRANSACTION");
But will this not make by code Database dependent? The advantage of using JDBC is that you can change the DB layer without affecting the code. I am not sure but if I put these statements in my code, will it not make it sybase specific?
I will appreciate an early reply on this.

I'm afraid much Transaction management is Sybase specific. For example, Oracle transaction management is provided mainly through the two SQL statements: COMMIT and ROLLBACK. Other commands related to transaction management include: SAVEPOINT, SET TRANSACTION, and SET AUTOCOMMIT.
Oh, the problems of portability!
