Using transactions within ActiveRecord

If you need to use a transaction within a model, here's a great example of an order object saving its billing/shipping addresses. A transaction is used in case either address does not save for any reason it'll back out of everything and throw an exception.

     * Save the current order.  In cart mode, this order will also save billing and shipping
     * @return bool
     * @throws \Exception
    public function save() {
        $transaction = $this->getDbConnection()->beginTransaction();
        try {
            if (!parent::save()) {
                throw new Exception('Order did not save correctly');
            //if it's a shopping cart, save required elements
            if ($this->getScenario() == 'cart') {
                //save billing address if it has't been saved
                if ($this->billing_address_id == null && is_object($this->billingAddress)) {
                    if (!$this->billingAddress->save()) {
                        throw new Exception('Billing address did not save');
                    $this->billing_address_id = $this->billingAddress->id;
                //save shipping address if it hasn't been saved
                if ($this->shipping_address_id == null && is_object($this->shippingAddress)) {
                    if (!$this->shippingAddress->save()) {
                        throw new Exception('Shipping address did not save');
                    $this->shipping_address_id = $this->shippingAddress->id;
            return true;
        } catch (\Exception $e) {
            Yii::log('Unable to save order: '.$e->getMessage(), \CLogger::LEVEL_ERROR, '');
            return false;

rollback() or commit() error message

If you call either rollback or commit a 2nd time on the same transaction, or call both functions for that matter, the transaction has expired and you will get this exception:

CDbTransaction is inactive and cannot perform commit or roll back operations.
