    Unfinished local transaction was rolled back

    Balázs Végs? Newbie

      Hi there,

      i'm getting a lot of these messages in my log which is at DEBUG level. I really don't know why, i've played around with manually committing or rolling back transactions, setting setAutoCommit() true/false on the connection i'm using, but this keeps filling my logs. Any thoughts?

          It looks like you have not terminated one of your connections by calling rollback or commit.

            private String[] getFilterSessions(String uid) {
             Log.infomsg(this, "Getting filter session list [UID: "+uid+"]");
             String SQL="SELECT ...";
             PreparedStatement pstmt = null;
             try {
             conn = OracleHelper.vchConnectionFromPool();
             pstmt = conn.prepareStatement( SQL );
             ResultSet rs=pstmt.executeQuery();
             catch (Exception ex) {
             finally {
             if( pstmt != null )
             catch (Exception e)
             Log.errmsg( "Exception: " + e.getMessage() );

            getting connection with: (USE_CONNECTION_POOL() returns true)

            public static Connection vchConnectionFromPool() throws java.sql.SQLException, javax.naming.NamingException
             if( USE_CONNECTION_POOL() )

             String JNDIName = "java:/jdbc/" + DB_CONNECTION_POOL();
             DataSource src = (DataSource) initCtx.lookup( JNDIName );
             return src.getConnection();

            if i do a commit/rollback before conn.close() in the finally block, the result is:

            You cannot rollback with autocommit set!

            from j2se doc: (http://java.sun.com/j2se/1.4.2/docs/api/java/sql/Connection.html)

            Note: By default a Connection object is in auto-commit mode, which means that it automatically commits changes after executing each statement.

                Yes, that is correct. By default all connections opened in a non transactional context will have auto commit set to true.

                However, you should only be seeing this error from a connection which has had its auto commit set to false.

                  thanks for your help. fortunately your comments made me think of my code in a new way and for some reason i tried to set autocommit to true with every retrieval of this connection object (in vchConnectionFromPool()).
                  this did help.
                  possible reason i think is that this method is static and always returns the same connection reference, which - if previously used in a transaction - was set to autocommit false.
                  i dont know if this makes sense, but whatever: the problem is solved.
                  thanks for hints, advice and help.
