Rollback to savepoint : Transation « Database « Java Tutorial

import java.sql.Connection;
import java.sql.DriverManager;
import java.sql.Savepoint;
import java.sql.Statement;

public class Main {
  public static void main(String[] args) throws Exception {
    Connection conn = getConnection();
    Statement st = conn.createStatement();

    st.executeUpdate("create table survey (id int,myURL CHAR);");
    st.executeUpdate("insert into survey(id) values(01)");
    st.executeUpdate("insert into survey(id) values(02)");

    Savepoint mySavepoint = conn.setSavepoint("MYSAVEPOINT");

    st.executeUpdate("insert into survey(id) values(03)");
    conn.rollback (mySavepoint);

  private static Connection getConnection() throws Exception {
    String url = "jdbc:hsqldb:mem:data/tutorial";

    return DriverManager.getConnection(url, "sa", "");
  1. Connection.releaseSavepoint() is used for removing a savepoint from a transaction.
  2. A rollback implicitly releases any savepoints that were defined after it.
  3. Once a transaction is committed or completely rolled back, all defined savepoints are released.
  4. Once a savepoint has been removed, any reference to it will cause a SQLException to be thrown.
  5. It is also possible to nest savepoints within transactions.
