A transaction encapsulates a sequence of operations that are treated as a single atomic unit.

Intermediate changes made during the lifetime of a transaction are isolated from the outside world — they remain invisible until the transaction has completed. A transaction, if completed successfully, must ensure the changes are persistent or durable.

WebLogic Server provides the infrastructure for transaction management and guarantees the integrity of your transactions.

WebLogic guarantees that updates to multiple resources occur correctly and accurately when a transaction completes successfully, and the entire transaction rolls back if any of the operations fail.
