Transactions and Error Handling in PostgreSQL
Ensure data consistency by learning how to use transactions and handle errors in concurrent environments.
Being able to leverage transactions and find and handle errors is critical to building resilient SQL scripts and working with databases. Transactions provide the protection needed to ensure that your data is consistent and operations work on the desired data in concurrent environments. Improper error handling can cause many serious and unexpected issues. Without the proper use of transactions and error handling, it’s possible to make decisions based on incorrect data leading to false outcomes. In this course, we’ll cover proper ways to use transactions and handle errors with a record of what went wrong. Additionally, we discuss how concurrently plays into the use of transactions and data outcomes. We’ll practice these concepts on the FFEIC bank health data and with a patient data table.
