Handling Transactions

When a COMMIT WORK database command is issued, it terminates a transaction and makes all work permanent and accessible to other users. The Acu4GL for Oracle run time system issues this command automatically when no locks are held, but you can cause it to happen under other conditions by setting the value of the COMMIT_COUNT ACUCOBOL-GT runtime configuration file variable.

For direct control over the transaction logging facility in Oracle, use the transaction management features available with ACUCOBOL-GT; see Transaction Management.

You are now ready to prepare and compile your COBOL program and run the demonstration program. For additional information, see Examples of Preparing and Compiling a Program and The Demonstration Program.
