Maintaining SQL Transactions Through JDBC

Say, you want to make a few operations in one ACID transaction, where the first one is deletion and the second one is inserting:

public class Main {
  public static void main(String[] args) {
    new JdbcSession(source)
      .autocommit(false)
      .sql("START TRANSACTION")
      .execute()
      .sql("DELETE FROM employee WHERE name = ?")
      .set("Jeff Lebowski")
      .execute()
      .sql("INSERT INTO employee VALUES (?)")
      .set("Walter Sobchak")
      .execute()
      .commit();
  }
}

In this example, autocommit(false) turns off autocommit mechanism, which happens by default after every call to update() or insert().

The last statement should be a call to commit(), which translates to the native transaction commit SQL statement.
