"Uncommitted Transactions" Message When Working With Database Links

(Doc ID 1503334.1)

Last updated on MARCH 08, 2017

Applies to:

Oracle SQL Developer - Version to 3.1 [Release 1.1 to 3]
Information in this document applies to any platform.
SQL Developer raises a window when working over database links.


Queries and other SQL transactions over a database link (db link) cause SQL Developer to believe there are uncommitted transactions. This is true even for SELECT queries.

Once a SELECT query or other SQL transaction is issued over the database link, closing the connection in SQL Dev raises a dialog box.

Setting Autocommit in Preferences has no effect.

Issuing an explicit COMMIT in the SQL Worksheet prevents the dialog from being raised.
