Hello, fellow devs.
I have been googling intensively in order to see whether somebody already
raised such issue, but so far I have been unsuccesful. Therefore, trembling
on my legs, I decided to write to the devlist as suggested in the docs.
I am trying to extend the atomic decorator / context statement in order to
do 'prepare transaction \'foo\'' rather than usual 'commit' on succesful
transaction. It is, however, not the usual scenario where django would talk
to multiple databases. What I have in mind is a bunch of microservices, one
of them which would be django application. Therefore django app would be
talking to the external transaction manager which would then take care of
executing the appropriate transactions inside of each microservice.
I suppose that after a bunch of hacking I could implement this with some
monkey patching of the original atomic() code but it clearly is not the way
I then started to think how this could be done database-agnostic way. I
know that PostgreSQL supports this with 'prepare transaction' statement,
but I suppose that other databases have different syntax for this kind of
behaviour and some don't support this feature at all. Therefore I thought
that in e.g. SQLite3 (or other database which doesn't support this
natively), this behavior could be 'emulated'. Therefore I thought of the
with transaction.atomic(commit_hook=lambda connection:
When you would do CRUD operations they would be instead serialized inside a
special table, and then, after issuing another command, say ..
from django.db import transaction
they would be applied using regular 'atomic' call. (or.. I don't know,
Django could raise an IntegrityError if the database doesn't support
distributed transactions and the code would try to execute them)
Do you think that this is realistic or is it a wrong approach to the
