In database management systems and operating systems, transactions are used as units of consistency, serializability, recovery, and for deadlock control. Normally, the transactions for each of these systems are considered independently. In this paper we describe nested transactions where the transactions from one system interact with the transactions from another system. Such nested transactions can expect to become more important with the introduction of network operating systems and heterogeneous distributed database systems.
