rails transactions

Active Record transactions are protective blocks where a series of operations are performed. It ensures that the database remains in a consistent state, no matter what happens inside the transaction. Active Record transactions were introduced to ensure data integrity even in the case of system failures. Here are the steps involved in using transactions in Ruby on Rails:

  1. Begin the transaction using the transaction method.
  2. Perform the operations or changes to the database within the transaction block.
  3. If an error occurs, the transaction is rolled back to its initial state.
  4. If no error occurs, the transaction is committed and the changes are saved to the database.

I hope this helps!
