Between commit and commit complete

What happens in between a commit and a commit complete internally?

What happens in between a commit and a commit complete internally?
The biggest thing that happens is that Oracle writes the changes to the online redo log files along with a commit marker for this transaction. A commit is not complete until this information has been written to the online redo log files. This way, if the database were to crash, the transaction could be recovered since it has been written to disk.
