Support nested transactions via savepoints in SQLite 3.6.8 and newer

Reported by Steve Jorgensen | January 18th, 2011 @ 09:08 AM

ActiveRecord supports nested transactions using savepoints, and SQLite supports savepoints in versions 3.6.8 and newer. ActiveRecord currenly does not, however, seem to implement nested transactions for SQLite, even when using 3.7.x versions.

I tested this using ActiveRecord 3.0.3, SQLite 3.7.2, and version 1.3.3 of the sqlite3 gem, and rollback is ignored for inner transactions. Only the outermost transaction can actually be rolled back. Also, from the Rails console...

ActiveRecord::Base.connection.supports_savepoints? => false

    That formatting didn't come out right. Let's try that console i/o again...

    > ActiveRecord::Base.connection.supports_savepoints?

    => false
