Subject Spring transactions for Jackrabbit and MySQL in Tomcat
Date Wed, 25 Mar 2009 17:04:47 GMT
Dear list,

I am a Jackrabbit newbie and am trying to get Jackrabbit running in  
the following context:

- Tomcat 5.5 or 6
- Spring 2.5.6
- MySQL or db4o (not clear yet)
- Jackrabbit

In particular, I want to get transactions running, encompassing  
Jackrabbit and MySQL/db4o.

I have search via Google to see whether I need an external transaction  
manager for this, as Tomcat does not provide Container Managed  
Transactions. I have seen a few posts on Jencks and Atomikos, and the  
introduction "Integrating Java Content Repository and Spring" at


To be on the safe side I'd like to know whether for my particular  
context this is still up-to-date: Do I need Jencks/Atomikos/some other  
transaction manager in order to use Jackrabbit and one more database  
under Spring?

If so, do you recommend Jencks or Atomikos?

Many thanks for any pointers,
