All Implemented Interfaces:

public class TransactionAbortedException
extends java.lang.RuntimeException

A run-time exception (intended to be checked) that indicates a transaction has unexpectedly aborted and rolled back. The exception may be thrown during calls to Database.startTransaction(), Database.commitTransaction(sos.db.Progress), Database.addObject(java.lang.Object), or any method on a database object.

When a transaction aborts, the client application is responsible for handling the failure. The application may wish to retry the transaction or inform the user that the transaction wasn't successful, for example.

If the transactions are nested, a TransactionAbortedException indicates that the inner-most transaction has aborted. If the client wishes to abort the topmost transaction as a result of an inner abortion, the client should catch the inner exception, abort the topmost transaction programmatically, and rethrow the exception, as follows:

  try {

    try {
      // perform a nested transaction
    catch( TransactionAbortedException tae ) {
      // abort the outer transaction
      throw tae;

  catch( TransactionAbortedException tae2 ) {
    Throwable cause = tae2.getCause();

    // Handle the failure.
    // This may mean retrying the transaction or
    // informing the user that it wasn't successful, e.g.
