hi

Q1. If I want to manually trigger a DB transaction  roleback
progrmatically what approach/methods should I use?

Q2. Also if in the transactions I use multiple models, should I start
the transaction by (a) choosing one of the models & going
<model>.transaction do, or (b) use some other generic DB transaction
method (ie no model namc)?

REQUIREMENTS:
* upload of records from file
* want to try each one re loading into DB, then collect errors in
array for those that fail
* then at end want to:
(a) roll back everything , but also
(b) overall method should NOT raise exception (ie why I want to
trigger rollback without relying on an exception to do this

thanks
