Subject RE: JTA support
Date Thu, 15 Apr 2004 10:54:18 GMT
Hi Robert,

Well... eerrrhmmm... let's see:

I just downloaded JBoss' latest version. I has already "integrated"
(ready to use) Tomcat 4 (v4.1, if I recall). Then, based on what JBoss
claims, I suppose (have not confirmed it, I have to say...) that the JTA
"management" implementation is provided (as specified by Sun's JTA
specs) by JBoss. The complementary part is, as you already know,
provided (or not) by the JDBC driver you are using. In a few words, I'm
trusting JBoss's JTA-ability, not Tomcat's.

That said, I can do this for you:

(1) Given the fact that I'll be using JBoss + Tomcat 4, just as they are
shipped, I'll develop a few JTA test over JBoss. Once I run them all, I
can send you my config files (cannot guarantee when I'll finish this,
I'm into lots of stuff right now). :)

(2) I can give it a look to see if I find something on the Internet (so
far, all I've found refers to v4, not v5).

Let me know if there is something else I can do for you.

Hi Freddy,

do you know (or anyone else for that matter) where to find instructions 
  how to configure a minimal JBoss to provide Tomcat 5 with JTA? On the 
JBoss website I can only see bundles with Tomcat 4. In case you succeed.

I would be interested in having a look at your configuration files. In 
the medium term I would like to get rid of our current hacked 
Tyrex-based JTA solution.
