PDO beginTransaction and commit

PDO::beginTransaction — Initiates a transaction.

Some databases, including MySQL, automatically issue an implicit COMMIT when a database definition language (DDL) statement such as DROP TABLE or CREATE TABLE is issued within a transaction. The implicit COMMIT will prevent you from rolling back any other changes within the transaction boundary.

Example #1 Roll back a transaction


$db = new PDO('mysql:host=localhost;dbname=testdb;charset=utf8', 'username', 'password');

/* Begin a transaction, turning off autocommit */


/* Change the database schema and data */

$stmt = $db->exec("DROP TABLE fruit");

$stmt = $db->exec("UPDATE dessert SET name = 'hamburger'");

/* Recognize mistake and roll back changes */


/* Database connection is now back in autocommit mode */

You can generate problems with nested beginTransaction and commit calls.

It  is dangerous since you could close your transaction too early with the nested commit().

There is no need to mess you code and pass like a bool which indicate if transaction is already running. You could just overload the beginTransaction() and commit() in your PDO wrapper like this:
