Subject DBCP2 in Tomcat
Date Wed, 28 Mar 2018 18:25:53 GMT

In Tomcat, DBCP2 is missing the XA portion (all contained in a single
"managed" package). So at work I now got some people asking about that
removal, and that's always a bit annoying as they have to go to a separate
vanilla DBCP2 to get the functionality. Annoying sometimes.

So it would be possible to add the classes in Tomcat (including the
javax.transaction to build, as that's the Tomcat way to deal with that),
even though the user would need to add its own transaction manager to do
anything with it.

Should I now add it (only in 9/trunk) or instead leave things the way they
are ? Both work to be honest, it's just that I've been bitten by the "we
only ship 3/4 of DBCP and I didn't know it" bug.
