You can't mix the return-code and exception error handling mechanisms in
I don't mean to suggest that the connection could be failing. If it
were, your program would be crashing because you aren't (apparently)
catching the exception you'd get if that were happening. It is
something you need to address to make this code production-ready, however.
If you must mix the two error handling mechanisms, you need to use a
NoExceptions object to temporarily turn off exceptions for a given block

You're referring to the connection in two different ways here. Are you
certain that these are the same connection?
And I hope Configuration::conn() returns by reference? If not, that's
probably the problem.

Not all of the storage engines MySQL offers support transactions. Are
you using one of them?
Transactions are also relatively recent additions to MySQL. Are you
using a version of MySQL that even supports transaction-aware storage
Does it work if you type the SQL for this insertion sequence into the
mysql command line client?
