Subject: [Zope] How to commit a piece of data in a transaction when
thetransaction is being aborted later
I am dealing with a zope system where Verisign is sending a POST to our
for ecommerece purposes. Currently I am writing the entire contents of the
POST from verisign to the ZODB however I have a problem that some of these
POSTs are not being recorded because an error occurs later in the
What I would like to do is isolate this recording from everything else. So
that no matter what other error is raised that part will commit so I have
record of the conversation later.
Currently I can put the logging step as the very first step in the
conversation with verisign and call get_transaction().commit() (I am
currently using zope 2.7 and working on the migration to zope 2.9)
What would be the best way to deal with this problem? Should I just do a
commit of the transaction as the very first step so that part is written
then zope will start a new transaction for the rest of the stuff done?
I somehow tell zope to run a certain function as its own transaction? Also
when I switch over to zope 2.9 how will these things need to be changed?
You could write the post data to a 'non-rollbackable' sql database, then any
subsequent processing errors won't impact the data you have already written
to the sql db.
