> I needed to support ".NET style" distributed transactions with ActiveMQ broker and provided
NMS WCF binding, but we can't get it working out of the box.
> Because of WCF binding lacks explicit support for this scenario, I tried to fool it by
supplying a wrapper for INetTxConnectionFactory (and a related one for INetTxConnection) as
an IConnectionFactory through nmsprovider-*.config file.
> Despite being able to make WCF binding to instantiate my wrapper class (and so, NetTxConnectionFactory
under the hood), I needed to modify slightly WCF binding code in two points:
> - NmsOutputChannel: here I noticed that a premature session disposing due to the using
block caused a deadlock when the ISession implementation was NetTxSession who waits for transaction
to complete (TransactionContext.DtcWaitHandle.WaitOne() in Close() method). This phenomenon
was not evident in the provided test code, because of the TransactionScope block is always
INSIDE the using block that scopes the session. Using WCF binding is somewhat higher level,
so I'm forced to wrap the WCF call with a TransactionScope.
> The modification I've made is to handle the non-transactional case like before, and to
defer session disposing when inside a transaction (for this I've used provided events "TransactionCommittedListener"
and "TransactionRolledBackListener").
> - NmsInputChannelListener: assuming a service method with OperationBehavior(TransactionScopeRequired
= true, TransactionAutoComplete = true), my perception of the expected behavior when an exception
is thrown in the service method is that the active transaction must be rolled back. Here we
are on the receiving part (NMS WCF binding is below service code in the stack!) so
> to ensure this behavior (I stress this here: it's the expected behavior for me), I've
had to provide a WCF custom IErrorHandler to raise an exception in HandleError method, that
NMS WCF binding could be catch and rollback the active transaction.
> To obtain this, I've had to rethrow the exception in Dispatch method. I don't know if
this cay cause troubles.
> Morover, I discovered a bug in ActiveMQ provider NetTxConnection.GuidFromId: the implementation
does not cares that the hyphen is a valid character hostnames.
> I attach two patches here: one for the WCF binding component with the described changes,
another for ActiveMQ provider with the transaction id translation fix and a minor one at a
logging statement.
> Best Regards,
> Andrea Montemaggio
