begin atomic for call in while fetching rows from cursor

P: n/a
I've written a procedure that extracts records from the source table
and migrates them into several other tables. For each source record
several records in destination tables have to be created and updated,
so this operations need to be done in one UoW. Furthermore, the
possible errors should be logged but they shouldn't stop the whole
migration process. So if the migration fails for one source record, the
migration should proceed for next records.
The procedure core looks like this:

declare c cursor for select ... --source records;
fetch from c into ...

while (SQLSTATE = '00000') do
t: begin atomic
call migration_logic(...)
fetch from c into ...

end while;

However when I run the procedure after first rollback, all the
proceeding calls of migration_logic(...) are rolled back with the same
sqlexception. I have no idea what is wrong. I tried to use savepoint
and rollback to savepoint but with the same result. I will appreciate
any help.
Best regards,

You need to have a CONTINUE handler for those failures in the procedure
you want to tolerate.
IMHO, the best place for it would be inside the BEGIN ATOMIC.. END block.
