At least you had some sample code to learn
embedded SQL from ;)  

However, for my own information, I'd be
very interested in seeing Dean's "Top Ten
rules for commitment control."  I know
pretty much what commitment control is for
(ensuring that nothing is "1/2 updated"
should an error occur, right?), but since
we don't develop new code here (only
enhance & maintain another vendor's code
that does *NOT* use SQL, VA-RPG, commitment
control, or any other goodies of the 90's
:(), my experience has been limited to
dabbling w/embedded SQL in in-house
conversions, file translations, and fix
pgms.  Most of them were one time deals, so
"commitment control" consisted of restoring
the files & rerunning the conversion if
something went wrong!
