chained transaction

Quick Reference

A transaction which consists of a series of further transactions that are executed sequentially. For example, a chained transaction might consists of a transaction to look up data in a database, a second transaction to look up some further data in another database, and a final transaction which updates a third database based on the results of the first and second transactions. Such transactions are easier to program than those which consist of a number of parallel transactions.
