Instance Public methods
add_transaction_record(record)

Register a record with the current transaction so that its after_commit and after_rollback callbacks can be called.

# File activerecord/lib/active_record/connection_adapters/abstract/database_statements.rb, line 305
def add_transaction_record(record)
  current_transaction.add_record(record)
end
begin_db_transaction()

Begins the transaction (and turns off auto-committing).

# File activerecord/lib/active_record/connection_adapters/abstract/database_statements.rb, line 314
def begin_db_transaction()    end
begin_isolated_db_transaction(isolation)

Begins the transaction with the isolation level set. Raises an error by default; adapters that support setting the isolation level should implement this method.

# File activerecord/lib/active_record/connection_adapters/abstract/database_statements.rb, line 328
def begin_isolated_db_transaction(isolation)
  raise ActiveRecord::TransactionIsolationError, "adapter does not support setting transaction isolation"
end
commit_db_transaction()

Commits the transaction (and turns on auto-committing).

# File activerecord/lib/active_record/connection_adapters/abstract/database_statements.rb, line 333
def commit_db_transaction()   end
create(arel, name = nil, pk = nil, id_value = nil, sequence_name = nil, binds = [])
Alias for: insert
default_sequence_name(table, column)
# File activerecord/lib/active_record/connection_adapters/abstract/database_statements.rb, line 347
def default_sequence_name(table, column)
  nil
end
delete(arel, name = nil, binds = [])

Executes the delete statement and returns the number of rows affected.

# File activerecord/lib/active_record/connection_adapters/abstract/database_statements.rb, line 180
def delete(arel, name = nil, binds = [])
  sql, binds = to_sql_and_binds(arel, binds)
  exec_delete(sql, name, binds)
end
empty_insert_statement_value(primary_key = nil)
# File activerecord/lib/active_record/connection_adapters/abstract/database_statements.rb, line 381
def empty_insert_statement_value(primary_key = nil)
  "DEFAULT VALUES"
end
exec_delete(sql, name = nil, binds = [])

Executes delete sql statement in the context of this connection using binds as the bind substitutes. name is logged along with the executed sql statement.

# File activerecord/lib/active_record/connection_adapters/abstract/database_statements.rb, line 143
def exec_delete(sql, name = nil, binds = [])
  exec_query(sql, name, binds)
end
exec_insert(sql, name = nil, binds = [], pk = nil, sequence_name = nil)

Executes insert sql statement in the context of this connection using binds as the bind substitutes. name is logged along with the executed sql statement.

# File activerecord/lib/active_record/connection_adapters/abstract/database_statements.rb, line 135
def exec_insert(sql, name = nil, binds = [], pk = nil, sequence_name = nil)
  sql, binds = sql_for_insert(sql, pk, binds)
  exec_query(sql, name, binds)
end
exec_query(sql, name = "SQL", binds = [], prepare: false)

Executes sql statement in the context of this connection using binds as the bind substitutes. name is logged along with the executed sql statement.

# File activerecord/lib/active_record/connection_adapters/abstract/database_statements.rb, line 128
def exec_query(sql, name = "SQL", binds = [], prepare: false)
  raise NotImplementedError
end
exec_update(sql, name = nil, binds = [])

Executes update sql statement in the context of this connection using binds as the bind substitutes. name is logged along with the executed sql statement.

# File activerecord/lib/active_record/connection_adapters/abstract/database_statements.rb, line 150
def exec_update(sql, name = nil, binds = [])
  exec_query(sql, name, binds)
end
execute(sql, name = nil)

Executes the SQL statement in the context of this connection and returns the raw result from the connection adapter. Note: depending on your database connector, the result returned by this method may be manually memory managed. Consider using the exec_query wrapper instead.

# File activerecord/lib/active_record/connection_adapters/abstract/database_statements.rb, line 121
def execute(sql, name = nil)
  raise NotImplementedError
end
insert(arel, name = nil, pk = nil, id_value = nil, sequence_name = nil, binds = [])

Executes an INSERT query and returns the new record's ID

id_value will be returned unless the value is nil, in which case the database will attempt to calculate the last inserted id and return that value.

If the next id was calculated in advance (as in Oracle), it should be passed in as id_value.

Also aliased as: create
# File activerecord/lib/active_record/connection_adapters/abstract/database_statements.rb, line 166
def insert(arel, name = nil, pk = nil, id_value = nil, sequence_name = nil, binds = [])
  sql, binds = to_sql_and_binds(arel, binds)
  value = exec_insert(sql, name, binds, pk, sequence_name)
  id_value || last_inserted_id(value)
end
insert_fixture(fixture, table_name)

Inserts the given fixture into the table. Overridden in adapters that require something beyond a simple insert (e.g. Oracle). Most of adapters should implement `insert_fixtures_set` that leverages bulk SQL insert. We keep this method to provide fallback for databases like sqlite that do not support bulk inserts.

# File activerecord/lib/active_record/connection_adapters/abstract/database_statements.rb, line 361
def insert_fixture(fixture, table_name)
  execute(build_fixture_sql(Array.wrap(fixture), table_name), "Fixture Insert")
end
insert_fixtures_set(fixture_set, tables_to_delete = [])
# File activerecord/lib/active_record/connection_adapters/abstract/database_statements.rb, line 365
def insert_fixtures_set(fixture_set, tables_to_delete = [])
  fixture_inserts = build_fixture_statements(fixture_set)
  table_deletes = tables_to_delete.map { |table| "DELETE FROM #{quote_table_name(table)}" }
  total_sql = Array(combine_multi_statements(table_deletes + fixture_inserts))

  with_multi_statements do
    disable_referential_integrity do
      transaction(requires_new: true) do
        total_sql.each do |sql|
          execute_batch(sql, "Fixtures Load")
        end
      end
    end
  end
end
reset_sequence!(table, column, sequence = nil)

Set the sequence to the max value of the table's column.

# File activerecord/lib/active_record/connection_adapters/abstract/database_statements.rb, line 352
def reset_sequence!(table, column, sequence = nil)
  # Do nothing by default. Implement for PostgreSQL, Oracle, ...
end
rollback_db_transaction()

Rolls back the transaction (and turns on auto-committing). Must be done if the transaction block raises an exception or returns false.

# File activerecord/lib/active_record/connection_adapters/abstract/database_statements.rb, line 337
def rollback_db_transaction
  exec_rollback_db_transaction
end
rollback_to_savepoint(name = nil)
# File activerecord/lib/active_record/connection_adapters/abstract/database_statements.rb, line 343
def rollback_to_savepoint(name = nil)
  exec_rollback_to_savepoint(name)
end
sanitize_limit(limit)

Sanitizes the given LIMIT parameter in order to prevent SQL injection.

The limit may be anything that can evaluate to a string via to_s. It should look like an integer, or an Arel SQL literal.

Returns Integer and Arel::Nodes::SqlLiteral limits as is.

# File activerecord/lib/active_record/connection_adapters/abstract/database_statements.rb, line 391
def sanitize_limit(limit)
  if limit.is_a?(Integer) || limit.is_a?(Arel::Nodes::SqlLiteral)
    limit
  else
    Integer(limit)
  end
end
select_all(arel, name = nil, binds = [], preparable: nil)

Returns an ActiveRecord::Result instance.

# File activerecord/lib/active_record/connection_adapters/abstract/database_statements.rb, line 61
def select_all(arel, name = nil, binds = [], preparable: nil)
  arel = arel_from_relation(arel)
  sql, binds = to_sql_and_binds(arel, binds)

  if preparable.nil?
    preparable = prepared_statements ? visitor.preparable : false
  end

  if prepared_statements && preparable
    select_prepared(sql, name, binds)
  else
    select(sql, name, binds)
  end
end
select_one(arel, name = nil, binds = [])

Returns a record hash with the column names as keys and column values as values.

# File activerecord/lib/active_record/connection_adapters/abstract/database_statements.rb, line 78
def select_one(arel, name = nil, binds = [])
  select_all(arel, name, binds).first
end
select_rows(arel, name = nil, binds = [])

Returns an array of arrays containing the field values. Order is the same as that returned by columns.

# File activerecord/lib/active_record/connection_adapters/abstract/database_statements.rb, line 95
def select_rows(arel, name = nil, binds = [])
  select_all(arel, name, binds).rows
end
select_value(arel, name = nil, binds = [])

Returns a single value from a record

# File activerecord/lib/active_record/connection_adapters/abstract/database_statements.rb, line 83
def select_value(arel, name = nil, binds = [])
  single_value_from_rows(select_rows(arel, name, binds))
end
select_values(arel, name = nil, binds = [])

Returns an array of the values of the first column in a select:

select_values("SELECT id FROM companies LIMIT 3") => [1,2,3]
# File activerecord/lib/active_record/connection_adapters/abstract/database_statements.rb, line 89
def select_values(arel, name = nil, binds = [])
  select_rows(arel, name, binds).map(&:first)
end
to_sql(arel_or_sql_string, binds = [])

Converts an arel AST to SQL

# File activerecord/lib/active_record/connection_adapters/abstract/database_statements.rb, line 12
def to_sql(arel_or_sql_string, binds = [])
  sql, _ = to_sql_and_binds(arel_or_sql_string, binds)
  sql
end
transaction(requires_new: nil, isolation: nil, joinable: true)

Runs the given block in a database transaction, and returns the result of the block.

Nested transactions support

Most databases don't support true nested transactions. At the time of writing, the only database that supports true nested transactions that we're aware of, is MS-SQL.

In order to get around this problem, transaction will emulate the effect of nested transactions, by using savepoints: dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/en/savepoint.html

It is safe to call this method if a database transaction is already open, i.e. if transaction is called within another transaction block. In case of a nested call, transaction will behave as follows:

  • The block will be run without doing anything. All database statements that happen within the block are effectively appended to the already open database transaction.

  • However, if :requires_new is set, the block will be wrapped in a database savepoint acting as a sub-transaction.

Caveats

MySQL doesn't support DDL transactions. If you perform a DDL operation, then any created savepoints will be automatically released. For example, if you've created a savepoint, then you execute a CREATE TABLE statement, then the savepoint that was created will be automatically released.

This means that, on MySQL, you shouldn't execute DDL operations inside a transaction call that you know might create a savepoint. Otherwise, transaction will raise exceptions when it tries to release the already-automatically-released savepoints:

Model.connection.transaction do  # BEGIN
  Model.connection.transaction(requires_new: true) do  # CREATE SAVEPOINT active_record_1
    Model.connection.create_table(...)
    # active_record_1 now automatically released
  end  # RELEASE SAVEPOINT active_record_1  <--- BOOM! database error!
end

Transaction isolation

If your database supports setting the isolation level for a transaction, you can set it like so:

Post.transaction(isolation: :serializable) do
  # ...
end

Valid isolation levels are:

  • :read_uncommitted

  • :read_committed

  • :repeatable_read

  • :serializable

You should consult the documentation for your database to understand the semantics of these different levels:

An ActiveRecord::TransactionIsolationError will be raised if:

  • The adapter does not support setting the isolation level

  • You are joining an existing open transaction

  • You are creating a nested (savepoint) transaction

The mysql2 and postgresql adapters support setting the transaction isolation level.

# File activerecord/lib/active_record/connection_adapters/abstract/database_statements.rb, line 276
def transaction(requires_new: nil, isolation: nil, joinable: true)
  if !requires_new && current_transaction.joinable?
    if isolation
      raise ActiveRecord::TransactionIsolationError, "cannot set isolation when joining a transaction"
    end
    yield
  else
    transaction_manager.within_new_transaction(isolation: isolation, joinable: joinable) { yield }
  end

# File activerecord/lib/active_record/connection_adapters/abstract/database_statements.rb, line 186
def truncate(table_name, name = nil)
  execute(build_truncate_statements(table_name), name)
end

# File activerecord/lib/active_record/connection_adapters/abstract/database_statements.rb, line 174
def update(arel, name = nil, binds = [])
  sql, binds = to_sql_and_binds(arel, binds)
  exec_update(sql, name, binds)
end
write_query?(sql)

Determines whether the SQL statement is a write query.
