Executing SQL Querys in Code

Posted on 2014-02-11

Last Modified: 2014-02-13
Is there  a simpler approach to updating a SQL Table than all this?  All this cross linkage of Transactions, Querys and Databases?  Do all Querys need transactions?

  IBDatabase1.DatabaseName := 'c:\backupdbs\JPBD.IB';

  IBDatabase1.DefaultTransaction := IBTransaction1;
  IBTransaction1.DefaultDatabase := IBDatabase1;

  IBQuery1.Transaction := IBTransaction1;

  IBQuery1.Database := IBDatabase1;
  IBQuery1.SQL.Add('Insert into Employee(PersonID, LastName) Values(1, ''Price'')');

That again depends on the database system you are using. But most times you do not need transactions, which results in autocommiting all changes without chance to rollback changes.

Transactions are used to bundle several commands into a single "atomic" operation. They don't make much sense with a single command.

The IB prefix sounds like FireBird. And yes, here you need explicit transactions. Well, abstraction is your friend. Encapsulate theses actions in an appropriate class model.
