Alternatives to Database Transactions

Ashwin Jayaprakash:

[…] there still are many systems where data flows across large applications; where a simpler, resilient and more predictable compensating mechanism is suitable. Simpler it may be, but designing such systems require a lot of foresight and expertise:

  • Optimistic concurrency based on version numbers
  • Atomic compare-and-swap upsert/update operations
  • Polite Spin locks and backoff-retry mechanisms
  • Clear error reporting
  • State capture, repair and consistency checking
  • Operation logging, undo and re-apply
  • Proper documentation and involvement of Developer/Architect
