I am writing a small application which i am posting at the end.This is decription of my application.I am writing a jsp.Later on i will be using in some other way.
I am using Oracle XA implementation to communicatewith my RM which oracle8.1.7 .
I am creating two XAConnection with two data instances 'test' and 'test3' .These two reside on my local machine in the same database server.
With the code which i am sending you i have tried two cases.
First Case
1)i use only one XAConnection object of say 'test'.
2)enlist its XADataSource with my transaction Object
3) get two connection objects and execute two sql's on themMy code works fine and maintains the transaction.

Second Case
1) I use create two XAConnection objects. one of 'test' and other of 'test3'.
2) enlist their XAResources with transaction object.
3) Now i take one connection from each of XAConnection and execute two sqls, oneon each of them.
It gives me exception while enlisting second XAResource with transaction objeectsaying that "The Xid is not valid".
below is the stackTrace.
javax.transaction.SystemException: start() failed on resource 'oracle.jdbc.xa.client.OracleXAResource':XAER_NOTA : The XID is not valid
