oci_commit -- Commits outstanding statements


bool oci_commit ( resource connection )

oci_commit() commits all outstanding statements for the active transaction on the Oracle connection connection.

Example 1. oci_commit() example

    // Login to Oracle server
    $conn = oci_connect('scott', 'tiger');
    // Parse SQL
    $stmt = oci_parse($conn, "
                              INSERT INTO 
                                         employees (name, surname) 
                                         ('Maxim', 'Maletsky')

    /* Execute statement
       OCI_DEFAULT tells oci_execute() 
       not to commit statement immediately */
    oci_execute($stmt, OCI_DEFAULT);

    Parsing and executing other statements here ...
    // Commit transaction
    $committed = oci_commit($conn);

    // Test whether commit was successful. If error occurred, return error message
    if (!$committed) {
        $error = oci_error($conn);
        echo 'Commit failed. Oracle reports: ' . $error['message'];


Returns TRUE on success or FALSE on failure.

Note: Transactions are automatically rolled back when you close the connection, or when the script ends, whichever is soonest. You need to explicitly call oci_commit() to commit the transaction, or oci_rollback() to abort it.

Note: In PHP versions before 5.0.0 you must use ocicommit() instead. This name still can be used, it was left as alias of oci_commit() for downwards compatability. This, however, is deprecated and not recommended.

See also oci_rollback() and oci_execute().
