This week's book giveaway is in the OCAJP 8 forum. We're giving away four copies of OCA Java SE 8 Programmer I Study Guide and have Edward Finegan & Robert Liguori on-line! See this thread for details.
We've just moved to Oracle, and I've noticed that if I log into the same db user with the command-line SQL*Plus to execute updates on the database, one user won't see what another user has done until you explicitly type commit. However, when our web application interacts with the database, the users on the console can see the changes immediately. Do you think the Oracle JDBC thin client auto-commits whatever our web app does?
