SQL Testaction does not handle transactions #244

Citrus supports the execution of sql statements based on sql scripts. This can be accomplished as follows:

<sql datasource="my-ds">
    <resource file="classpath:lion/sql/insert_testdata.sql"/>

With insert_testdata.sql (Oracle SQL):


The problem is that citrus will execute every line within the script separately with a getJdbcTemplate().execute(stmt); call (see code). Depending on the configured DataSource this will not support the transaction and always execute and commit every statement. For example, a org.springframework.jdbc.datasource.DriverManagerDataSource will create a new connection for every execute invocation, thus preventing the transaction. The DriverManagerDataSource, however, does support transactions but this must be accomplished using a Spring transaction manager. At the moment this is not supported in Citrus.


Support Spring transaction managers. Add a section on transactions in the Citrus documentation.

I've just tried it. It works with a data source of type org.springframework.jdbc.datasource.DataSourceTransactionManager.
