Using Transactions

OA Billing uses transaction mechanism to process requests. It works the following way: if request is processed successfully, made changes are committed; otherwise, made changes are rolled back.

XMLRPC supports transaction flow. If you do not specify a transaction ID in a method a request, OA Billing creates new transaction, processes the request commits (or rolls back changes made by this request and closes the transaction. This behavior can be changed by switching off automatic commit for a particular request. The AutoCommitTx is set to False to prevent immediate commit.

OA Billing creates new transaction, processes the request, stores made changes and returns ID of created transaction. The transaction ID being included into a request prevents creation of new transaction and joins request processing to previously started transaction instead.

Transaction originator must explicitly commit/rollback the transaction received from PBA using the Odin Business Complete Node in the response to the request Execute. If that did not happen, the transaction will be left in the system, locking further requests to the object, which may lead to problems with control panel and general PBA functionality.
