    How do I run it with JDBC?

    Traktor Toni Newbie

      Hi, I looked into the JDBC spec and it says that there is support for distributed transactions. I looked it up and downloaded jbossts-full-4.17.4.Final


      I set NARAYANA_HOME to "C:\jbossts-full-4.17.4.Final"

      But when I try to run "start-transaction-service.bat", it just gives me an error:


      Error: Could not find or load main class com.arjuna.ats.jts.TransactionServer


      I read that JBoss is a good implementation of JTA, can you help me get it up and running? Is it even possible on my local development machine? I suppose I'm not really "distributed" and I don't even know what "narayana" means.

      There's also a "services" folder which has more .bat files like for example: transactionserverservice.bat and InstallTransactionServerService-NT.bat, but I ran them all and I'm still getting the above error with the class not found.

          The readme instructions are wrong. To start the JTS version of the transaction manager:


          . ./jts-setup-env.sh

          export CLASSPATH=$CLASSPATH:$NARAYANA_HOME/lib/jts/jbossjts-jacorb.jar



          similarly if you are running on Windows.


          When we fix the readme we will also include updated instructions on running the JTA version.

            Now I'm getting this, very weird cmdline formatting: (it's really that long)

              I think you have executed jta-setup-env.bat rather than jts-setup-env.bat
