Delphi Error Trap For Failed Stored Procedure

Posted on 2014-04-04
Last Modified: 2014-04-16
I have a Delphi 2006 application which calls several ADO Stored Procedures.
My problem is that the SP returns a Transaction Deadlock every now and then and If have implemented the standard Delphi error trapping but it does not seem to work ?

Is there another way of catching these errors so my application does not crash ?

        Memo1.Text:=Memo1.Text+'Start Recalc'+FormatDateTime('HH:MM:ss',Time)+#13+#10;
        while Brk=1 do
           except on E:Exception do
                Memo1.Text:=Memo1.Text+'ADOCan Error';

        Memo1.Text:=Memo1.Text+'End Recalc'+FormatDateTime('HH:MM:ss',Time)+#13+#10;

I suggest to use:
    DBConn.CommitTrans; //on success, commit the changes;
    DBConn.RollbackTrans; //on failure, undo the changes;

Open in new window

DBConn is AdoConnection, and your ADOCAN is linked to it.

... your procedure can be called using TADOCommand component too:
q: TADOCommand;
    q.CommandText:='exec procName param1, prarm2';

Open in new window

Your while loop does not make any sense. The wrapped code will just run once, so what is the point of the while loop?

I would have written that block of code as follows (note the e.message I added):
  Memo1.lines.add('Start Recalc '+FormatDateTime('HH:MM:ss',Time));
  Memo1.lines.add('End Recalc '+FormatDateTime('HH:MM:ss',Time));
except on E:Exception 
  do Memo1.lines.add('ADOCan Error: ' + e.message);      

Open in new window

can you elaborate on "...implemented the standard Delphi error trapping but it does not seem to work"? What is not working as expected? What error are you getting?

you will never be able to solve the deadlock from the delphi app
you need to look at the stored procedure

somewhere you are locking row A, someone else is locking row B
then someone else wants to lock row A and then you want to lock row B
that's your deadlock

find what 2 rows you are locking, and then see if anyone can do it in the reverse order
