DML statements are what perform the actions of:

  • Insert
  • Update
  • Delete
  • Upsert
  • Restoring records
  • Merging records
  • Converting lead operations

Database methods are an alternative way of modifying data in the database.

Database methods allow partial updates and printing of the list of failed/succeeded records. DML statements do not allow this functionality.
