How test if a call of a transaction fails inside another transaction

Hi there,

I have two transactions: T1 and T2. T1 calls T2. T2 have a "SQL" action.

When I disable the data server used for that SQL action my sql command fails. Thats okay. So a have a "Conditional" action testing the parameter "sucess" of that SQL action and when it is "false" a "Terminate transatcion" action is used. The links are:

Terminate_Transaction.TerminateWithError = sql_nameOfQuery.Success

Terminate_Transaction.TerminationMessage = sql_nameOfQuery.Results{/Rowsets/FatalError}

Using a "Trace" action in T2 I can see that:

sql_nameOfQuery.Success = false

sql_nameOfQuery.Results{/Rowsets/FatalError} = "Server Test is currently disabled"

My problem is how T1 kowns that T2 was terminated with a fail. I put a "conditional" action with the link:

Conditional.Output = not( T2.Success )

and it is not working for me. Is this link right for the Conditional action?

Despite de fact it call a "Terminate transaction" action I have always "OK" value for T2.Sucess!

Using a "Trace" action in T1 I can see that:

T2.Sucess = OK


Thank in advance,

Nuno Cunha

    in your T2, you can populate the TerminationMessage with your Error Text from the query.

    In T1, you will receive the error message in T2.LastErrorMessage. If you set the TerminateWithError Flag in T2, you can evaluate the T2.Success flag in T1 which will then be false. If you do not set the TerminateWithError in T2, the T2.Success Flag will be true, however the LastErrorMessage will still be set.

    The text "TRANSACTION EXECUTED OK" in T2.LastErrorMessage will appear if the Transaction (T2) was not terminated.
