I've read that the DummyTransactionManager should not be used in production but we have a case where we need the transactional (read/write) nature of JBossCache without the app server overhead.
We have 3 servers, one that writes and 2 that reads. We would like to replicate changes from the writer to the readers. The writer is writing to a Sybase database. If we use the DummyTransactionManager, will it default to a Sybase transaction?
No it won't. You may want to look at some standalone TX Managers, such as HOWL or JOTM (?).
