All my calls for commit() close node with Segmentation Fault. I tested this with setAutoCommit(false).

I tested with Instant Client 12.1


var oracle = require("oracle")
var INSERT_EXAMPLE= ... //wherever

oracle.connect(connectData, function(err, connection) {
    if (err) { console.log("Error connecting to db:", err); return; }


    connection.execute(INSERT_EXAMPLE, [], function(err, results) {
        if (err) { console.log("Error executing query:", err); return; }

        connection.commit(function(err) {
            console.log("callback commit")
        connection.close(); // call only when query is finished executing

please put the connection.close() inside
the commit callback. You are probably closing the connection before the commit happens.

Shouldnot result in a SegFault, but might be the cause

ok, was wrong here, but i have segfault yet in commit().

My workaround is replace commit and close functions for:

connection.execute("commit", [], function (err, results) {console.log(err); connection.close();} )

I'm running into this as well, with both commit and rollback on node v0.8.14 and v0.8.21. I've confirmed that doing an execute('commit'...) or execute('rollback', ...) appears to work. I don't close connection at all, since I'm using generic-pool, so it's probably not related to connection.close().
