    Problem with XA transactions on JBoss 4.2.1

    cat Newbie

      Hi,
      we have some problem working with Java JEE and XA transactions . We are using JBoss 4.2.1 on a Linux machine that has two datasources one that goes on an DB2 (AS400/iSeries) and the other taht goes on a Postgres 8.2.
      In some circumstances it happen that a transaction (XA) that involves the two DBs expires and when it happens on the AS400 machine some jobs start consuming a lot of CPU processing. We tried to stop those jobs but we did not succeed and the only way to kill them is to do an IPL (reboot the machine). Just to test we tried to use JBoss 4.2.2 and it seems that the issue (at least the one involving two phase commit transaction) disappeared. We researched a bit on internet if something has been done in JBoss 4.2.2 about XA transaction "bug fixing" but we found no information, does someone knows something about ?

      Thanks in advance
