commit [Oracle SQL]

commit work;

commit comment 'some text';
commit force 'some text';
commit force 'some text' n;
n being an integer.
Commit ends a transaction and makes all changes of that transaction persistent.
There are two rules governing the use of commit in Oracle:
  • Commit as soon as you can, but
  • Don't commit earlier than you should.
