MySQL NDB Cluster API Developer Guide NdbTransaction::execute()

Description.  This method is used to execute a transaction.


int execute
      ExecType execType,
      NdbOperation::AbortOption abortOption = NdbOperation::DefaultAbortOption,
      int force = 0

Parameters.  The execute method takes the three parameters listed here:

Return value.  Returns 0 on success, or -1 on failure. The fact that the transaction did not abort does not necessarily mean that each operation was successful; you must check each operation individually for errors.

In MySQL 5.1.15 and earlier versions, this method returned -1 for some errors even when the trasnsaction itself was not aborted; beginning with MySQL 5.1.16, this method reports a failure if and only if the transaction was aborted. (This change was made due to the fact it had been possible to construct cases where there was no way to determine whether or not a transaction was actually aborted.) However, the transaction's error information is still set in such cases to reflect the actual error code and category.

This means, in the case where a NoDataFound error is a possibility, you must now check for it explicitly, as shown in this example:

Ndb_cluster_connection myConnection;

if( myConnection.connect(4, 5, 1) )
  cout << "Unable to connect to cluster within 30 secs." << endl;

Ndb myNdb(&myConnection, "test");

//  define operations...

myTransaction = myNdb->startTransaction();

if(myTransaction->getNdbError().classification == NdbError:NoDataFound)
  cout << "No records found." << endl;
  //  ...
