Subject Re: Single Transaction Using Multiple Method Calls That Open New Database Connections
Date Wed, 14 Feb 2007 23:14:25 GMT
If you're using multiple connections, then you need to use JTA to have 
it work in a single transaction, and your database driver needs to 
support XA.

If you're running in a J2EE environment with declarative transaction 
management enabled, you're good to go.

If you're running in a web container, you may be able to get a reference 
to a UserTransaction object through JNDI (look up UserTransaction in 
Google).  Some web containers provide JTA support, others don't and 
you'll need to get it from a third party.

Others may provide details and/or corrections to what I say here, but 
that's the general idea.
