Quick Reference

A transaction may consist of a number of individual transactions which carry out processes such as reading and writing to a database. When the transaction is completed all the individual transactions must have successfully carried out their tasks. A one-phase commit protocol involves a coordinator periodically communicating with the servers that are carrying out each individual transaction in order to inform them whether to commit the transaction or abort it. See also two-phase commit protocol.
