the spec says (section Transient Storage in the Session
Changes made through most methods of Session, Node  or Property are
not immediately reflected in the persistent workspace. The changes are
held in transient storage associated with the Session object until
they are either persisted (using save) or discarded (using refresh).
Changes not yet saved or discarded are called pending changes. Pending
changes are immediately visible through the Session that made them but
are not visible through other Sessions accessing the same workspace.
Session.save validates and (if validation succeeds) persists all
pending changes currently stored in the Session object, making them
visible to other sessions. Conversely, Session.refresh discards all
pending changes currently stored in the Session. For more fine-grained
control over which changes are persisted or discarded, the methods
Item.save and Item.refresh are also provided. Item.save saves all
pending changes in the Session that apply to that particular item or
its subtree. Analogously, Item.refresh discards all pending changes
that apply to that item or its subtree. See 6.3 Writing to the

Subject: JTA support

as you might have noticed i have just committed a large chunk
of code. this is the first implementation of transaction support (JTA)
in jackrabbit!

the code has been contributed by dominique pfister and i think
he has done a great job :)

dominique is lurking in the jackrabbit-dev list and i'm sure that
he'll be happy to answer all tx related questions that might come up.

jta support is exposed via the XASession, i.e. Repository.login()
returns a XASession instance instead of the regular Session.
