Subject Re: ibatis and global transactions

Sorry, I should be more clear.

You would have a separate sqlmap for each datasource. Your sqlmap
would be tied to the datasource via JNDI. You would also have your
global transaction specified as a JNDI context as well.

So each datasource has a sqlmap, each sqlmap has a SINGLE JNDI
specified datasource. All sqlmaps that should use the same JTA would
configure it.

<transactionManager type="JTA" >
<property name="UserTransaction" value="java:/ctx/con/UserTransaction"/>
<dataSource type="JNDI">
<property name="DataSource" value="java:comp/env/jdbc/jpetstore"/>

What you can't do is have several datasources defined in ONE sqlmap config.

Depending on how complex your needs are. Sometimes EXTERNAL is better.
This is especially true when you have to maintain transactions across
several write operations that span across several user actions before
it finally commits. I think this is what Steven is running in to.
