Subject Re: Do triggers block?
Date Sun, 15 Sep 2019 23:15:53 GMT
The statement.execute() method will not return until all triggered 
actions complete. If the trigger invokes a user-written java method, 
then the trigger will not finish executing until the method returns. All 
of the transactional work done by the statement operates within a 
savepoint. That includes the transactional work done by the statement's 
triggers and all of the transactional work done by user-written methods 
invoked by those triggers. If a statement-level error occurs, then all 
of the work done in the savepoint is rolled back--but the work done by 
previous statements in the transaction is not rolled back. Waiting for 
the user-written method to complete is all part of this savepoint 

Hope this helps,
