Our J2CA and JTA implementation is in 
asf/geronimo/components/txmanager/trunk.  You can see how we handle  
the J2CA transaction import using XATerminator and XAWork  
interfaces.  Also notice that in order to make transaction recovery  
work without necessarily all previously existing RMs starting up  
again we've named the RMs with NamedXAResource.  The idea is that  
when the tm starts up again it reads the log to find all the in- 
flight txs and as each RM starts up it registers with the TM and the  
outstanding in-flight txs in that RM are either rolled back or  
committed based on what's in the log.  In order to clear out txs  
where some or all RMs are actually committed before the tm logs  
"complete" we compare the names of the RM with the names stored with  
the xids in the log.

In the geronimo modules/geronimo-transaction module we have gbeans  
that start the actual TM components at runtime.  You will at least  
need to write some gbean wrappers for the Atomikos TM.  You'll  
probably want to write a replacement configs/transaction module to  
use instead of the standard one.  Then you can map uses of our tm  
module to yours with an entry in var/config/

Hope this helps
