ABAP Keyword Documentation → ABAP Glossary
End of a database LUW, in which changed data records are written to the database. All changes are temporary until they have been written using a database commit. Changes are always directly visibile to the executing program. The database system that is used determines whether other users can see the database changes immediately or only after the database commit. In AS ABAP, database commits are triggered implicitly, as well as by being requested explicitly.
