Hi,

I have a message flow that inserts into two different databases from a single compute node. And further down in the compute node, sometimes an error is thrown.

Code:

PASSTHRU '<insert statement1>' TO Database.TESTDB1;
PASSTHRU '<insert statement2>' TO Database.TESTDB2;
.
.
.
.
.
.
.
.
.
.
.
THROW USER EXCEPTION MESSAGE 4017 VALUES ('User Exception');


The Transaction property of the compute node is set to Automatic and the message flow is transactional.

With this setting, I expected both the insert statements to be rolled back when the User Exception is thrown. But that did not happen. Only the insert statement made to TESTDB1 got rolled back and the other insert statement stayed in the table.

I tried giving the insert statements in reverse order as well, thinking this might have something to do with the opening and closing of DB connections.

Code:

PASSTHRU '<insert statement2>' TO Database.TESTDB2;
PASSTHRU '<insert statement1>' TO Database.TESTDB1;
.
.
.
.
.
.
.
.
.
.
.
THROW USER EXCEPTION MESSAGE 4017 VALUES ('User Exception');


Even in this case, only the insert statement made to TESTDB1 got rolled back. Both TESTDB1 and TESTDB2 are DB2 Databases and both have Auto-Commit turned ON. (I've checked using db2 list command options. Not sure if there's any other way to check. Please guide me)

Please let me know if this is expected behavior. When I throw the error, I want both the entries to be rolled back. The error thrown does reach the Input Node and the catch terminal is not connected.

If the transaction has to be rolled back, the transaction must be actually ended up as exception. If you have wired your input node catch and failure terminal and handled the exception, push it to a queue, then, transaction ended successfully after the commit. Hence, rollback is not happening even you kept your compute node transaction mode to automatic.

You have two options

1) Use compute node after your exception handler subflow(or whatever) where you have Rollback statement.
2) Use throw node after your exception handler subflow(or whatever).

Since you are using multiple DSN here, you handle that part in Rollback options instead of Throw node.

Make Sense!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The flow has actually ended up as exception. Catch terminal of input terminal is not wired. Rollback is happening in one DB, not in another.

I have used Rollback statement for now. My question is, why is one DB getting rolled back but not the other?

You could check for differences between the odbc stanza used for the two databases...also may be it worth enabling odbc trace for both connections and compare it.

Your expectation is correct, ideally the rollback should happen for both databases. If all the settings are the same then may be it is time for a PMR...

Just a reminder: Transaction mode automatic means it varies based on message persistence.

So always test with persistent messages (RFHUTIL has the dangerous default of non-persistent).

Which data source does the compute node use? What happens if the message flow uses separate compute nodes for each PASSTHRU statement, with the corresponding data source configured for each compute node?

BIP4017 is not the best choice here; it means something else. The broker reserves exception numbers from 2949 to 2999 for user exceptions generated from THROW statements.
