Hello experts:

1. When should I use transactions in the database? (begin, commit, rollback)
2. When I use the .net framework?

Which is better?

When should you use transactions? When you have a piece of code that you might want to undo.

For example, I might
BEGIN TRAN
UPDATE a table
SELECT the updated table
ROLLBACK TRAN
Because I didn't actually want to commit the changes, just see what would happen.

Or I want to
debit someone's bank account, then
Credit someone else's.
If the credit didn't work, undo the debit.

I would suggest asking that as a separate question.

It's simply a question of granularity.

Can a (distributed) database transaction do what you want? Or are external resources involved, which require special handling?
