JTA managed transactions
posted 5 years ago
I am trying to understand managed transactions and how they are related to XA.
My understanding is that XA resources, such as data sources, allow 2 phase commit where multiple data sources are involved in the same transaction. This must be managed with a JTA transaction manager.
But where only a single data source is involved, there is no need for XA data sources.
Is there still a need for a JTA transaction manager?
Is a non-JTA transaction manager still able to manage transactions as they are propagated through the application?
I am using
5 with Spring 3: this means Spring transaction annotations and Spring JtaTransactionManager.
Any help appreciated,
It is sorta covered in the
