You can manage your transactions with EXTERNAL of JTA. I believe that
EXTERNAL is the better route to go in this case. This means that you
will need to configure and manually start and stop your transactions
outside of ibatis. Search the DAO pdf doc and the SQL Maps pdf doc for
external to get more information.

The JTA option in ibatis is tied to a single datasource. So, as far as
global transactions that span databases... I don't think it would be
that simple to accomplish with iBatis JTA support.

Your other option is to use Spring (which would mean you get rid of
the dao.xml) and setup sqlMapConfigs for each database you are
accessing. Then you could use Spring's transaction management to
manage transactions across any data access implementations you might
