Autocommit for SqlUpdate Spring object

I've been experiencing a transaction management issue with Spring's SqlUpdate class.

I have 3 instances of SqlUpdate, two of them are update statements the other is an alter table statement. I have a catch statement wherein if there's an error transaction should be rolled back.

This works ok if the problem is with the update statement, say update statement 1 is ok, update statement2 gets an error statement1 gets rolled back. But if the problem is with the alter table statement, the 2 update statements get committed even though rollback is called.

If anybody has an idea, it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Unfortunately, it is not a transaction problem. It is that an Alter Table command is a DDL command, and Updates are CRUD commands. Databases act differently with different types of commands. In almost all databases a DDL script means a commit is run automatically by the database. No ways around that except maybe in some kind of database configuration. But you would need to contact your DBA to do that.

Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
