> The problem here is that in a 2 phase transaction the xa spec does not  
> permit a RB* return code in response to xa_commit().  The xa spec says  
> the following about RB* return codes in the xa_commit() section:        
> "The resource manager did not commit the work done on behalf of the     
> transaction branch.  Upon return, the resource manager has rolled back  
> the branch?s work and has released all held resources.  These values may
> be returned only if TMONEPHASE is set in flags"                         
> Essentially, the only two return codes from xa_commit that J2EE Containers can     
> handle sensibly are XA_OK (normal case) and XA_RMFAIL.  RMFAIL will     
> cause the containers to retry to commit the  transaction.  Any other return code will
result in a heuristic          
> transaction outcome (non-atomic).  
> In a xa environment the TMONEPHASE is not set on the flags and so XA_RBTIMEOUT is 
> not a permitted return code. A Container  transaction service cannot do anything to ensure
an atomic     
> outcome if an XAResource fails to honour its promise to be able to commit it made when
it answer XA_OK in response to xa_prepare(). 
> The internal timeout handling will rollback the Jackrabbit XAResource if the time exceeds
between prepare and commit.
> and in the commit Method will always throw a XA_RBTIMEOUT.
> We should not handle the timeout internal because this should make the container in a
2 Phase transaction.
