Subject Re: Extension to OpenJPA for distributed databases
Date Wed, 06 Feb 2008 20:32:34 GMT

I see that you've gone a head and done the commit for this. Some questions:

1. At one point, Slice had a mock XA transaction manager in it. Has
this been removed? I strongly feel that OpenJPA should not be in the
business of XA transaction management.

2. I see that you changed some stuff outside of the new openjpa-slice
module. Do these changes mean that slice is now part of 1.1.0? I think
that we might want to spend more time reviewing and discussing before
including this in a shipping product. One way to address this could be
by creating a branch; another could be by leaving it in trunk but not
changing the build.
