If a Stored Procedure contains an insert statement wrapped in a transaction and that transaction is rolled back in the procedure, does the after trigger still fire? Or is the trigger only called upon the commit statement?

Thanks.

if the procedure is like this:

  begin transaction
    insert into table ...
  rollback

and the table has a insert trigger, the trigger WILL fire

would the rowcount from the inserted table work to identify whether the stored procedure's insert had indeed been successful?

to clarify:
  if the insert statement fails as such due to data type problems for example; the trigger will NOT raise.
  as soon as the insert could do it's initial job, the trigger will be raised even if the insert inserted 0 rows:
 insert into sometable select * from othertable where <condition>
  with a condition that will make that 0 rows are inserted
  -> the trigger WILL raise, but indeed with 0 rows in the "INSERTED" table (better use that than rowcount)
