New Interbase driver configuration parameter COMMIT RETAIN.

Abstract: May need to merge BDE configuration files to see the new Interbase parameters.


What is the COMMIT RETAIN property and why can't I see it in the BDE Administrator?


COMMIT RETAIN is a new Interbase driver configuration parameter. It was introduced for explicit transactions to retain cursors on commit. It will not appear in existing aliases but should appear in new Interbase aliases, along with two other new parameters - WAIT ON LOCKS and ROLE NAME.

If these new properties do not appear when creating a new Interbase alias try this fix: After installing the latest version of the BDE, run BDE Administrator and select Object|Merge Configuration. In the Open dialog, enter SQL_INT.CNF as the file name. This file should be in the main BDE directory. See the BDE help for more information.
