    Question Unanswered: Long transactions

    Hi,

    In database related literature; I've come across the
    term "long transactions". What does this exactly mean ?
    From what I've learnt; transactions should be kept short
    to facilitate concurrency.

    Cheers,

    long transactions

    Don't know about the term exactly but if you use a long transaction never set the transactino isolation level to serlizeabel.
    Transactions will get executed in a serial way and thats bad :-)
