It is how oracle audits (or you), commit a record in the audit table without preventing rollback of the transaction. If you don't understand precisely what is happening, it probably should be avoided. - Thomas Kyte, Expert oracle database architecture. Tom has a section that discusses the issue, and he gives an example of how important it is to think out the logic. His example of course revolved around rudimentary auditing... and since oracle does a good job of that already, the example is academic only.
