Subject Re: Performance issue: org.ofbiz.entity.transaction.TransactionUtil seems to be bottleneck
Date Tue, 01 Jun 2010 09:14:12 GMT

we probably found a simple solution for the synchronized begin()
problem. We set the TransactionUtil.debugResources flag to false; so no
more DebugXaResources are created in the begin() method, which seems to
be the problematic (performance-wise) part.
Now this method is a lot less problematic, judging from the profiler output.
I'm not exactly sure what the code does that's not run any more. But
judging from its name ("debug") it shouldn't have any adverse effects in
a production setting, should it?

Best Regards
