Problem: ArcSDE Java API 8.1 Final : SeDelete.fromTable method does not work
This problem is addressed in ArcGIS 8.1 Service Pack 1 and later releases of ArcSDE. Click on the link in Related Information, below; click on ArcSDE and under version 8.1, select ArcGIS Service Pack 1. Follow download instructions.
The SeDelete.fromTable method does not delete the rows specified from the ArcSDE table or layer.
The delete method fails because the operation was not successfully committed to the database.
Solution or Workaround
At the end of the delete operation(s), invoke the SeConnection.commitTransaction method. All data transaction operations will then be force-committed to the server.
