Re: fetch across commit

Steve Rospo



[Appolgies if this gets double posted, I got an "overquote" bounce. ]

I haven't tried a "where current of" or the "order by" workarounds, but I
usually just push the data into some sort of PL/SQL collection. It's got
the same transactional semantics with no (real) risk of 1555s with only a
minor code tweak. Even if there wasn't a commit in the loop, this might
be a good technique to prevent the RBSs from getting enormous if the inner
part of the loop took an *extremely* long time.

If you do a bulk collect, you get the added benefit of doing a single
round trip, rather than a row by row fetch. (I think 9i or 10g does a
transparent optimization here, turning your row by row fetch into a bulk
under the covers)
