Subject Re: Antw: Re: OSGi Transaction control fails with hibernate

Hi Alexander,

So what you’re doing is passing a fully configured EntityManagerFactory to the resource
provider factory. If you create the provider this way then you are responsible for setting
up all of the EntityManagerFactory’s configuration, including how it’s going to integrate
with transaction control. For local transactions there is nothing to integrate with , but
in the general case this is actually quite hard to do, and I would advise not trying to do

As you can see the EntityManagerFactory version of the provider factory <https://github.com/apache/aries/blob/ed8dbc79758766081203056cff27eb0bcbd7efb3/tx-control/tx-control-providers/jpa/tx-control-provider-jpa-xa/src/main/java/org/apache/aries/tx/control/jpa/xa/impl/JPAEntityManagerProviderFactoryImpl.java#L122>
does quite a bit less setup on your behalf than the configuration-driven version does <https://github.com/apache/aries/blob/ed8dbc79758766081203056cff27eb0bcbd7efb3/tx-control/tx-control-providers/jpa/tx-control-provider-jpa-xa/src/main/java/org/apache/aries/tx/control/jpa/xa/impl/XAJPAEMFLocator.java#L72>.
If you were to 
provide a factory configuration for the “org.apache.aries.tx.control.jpa.xa” pid containing
“osgi.unit.name=<your persistence unit’s name>” and any necessary datasource configuration
(i.e. that’s not coming from the persistence xml) then you could inject the JPAEntityManagerProvider
directly as a service.

More documentation about configuration-driven resources for Aries Tx-Control is available
at http://aries.apache.org/modules/tx-control/xaJPA.html#creating-a-resource-using-a-factory-configuration

Another thing that probably could be done would be to look at dynamically installing the plugin
when using the EntityManagerFactoryBuilder version of the factory method. This, however, would
need a patch to Aries Transaction Control, and would still not make your existing code work.

> Hi Alexander,
> Do you have a code example of how you’re obtaining and using the EntityManager? There
should be no usage of the OSGiJtaPlatform from the tx-control XA JPA resource provider, which
means that there’s either a bug in the resource provider, or something is misconfigured.
If you are a member of the Aries user mailing list then that would be a better place to continue
this discussion.

 I think this should be used in tx-control instead of wrapping the tm again and not being

(derived from geronimo's TransactionManager Implementation) explicitly instead of using the

provided by OsgiJtaPlatform (from hibernate-osgi) which is of course the one registered in
