    Web Services Transactions

    Matias Blasi Newbie

      Hello, I am researching about the web services transactions behaiviour...
      I have read the WS-C, WS-AT & WS-BA specifications, and several internet papers, i have the concepts.
      Now I am looking for a working sample, to have something runing something to begin from...
      I know that Arjuna had an implementation, and it was included in jboss project so far. I understand it is now the jbossts component.
      I was trying to run the xts-demo application into the jboss-4.2.2 & jbossts-4.2.2 with no success...
      Now I am with jboss-5.0.0-beta4, where is the web services transcation support here? I see only a jbossws component, as a .sar application, but no samples, and nothing seems to provide the web services transaction support...

      Can anyone help me? I've put a lot of days in that, and I need a sample to see this feature really working...

      Thank you a lot!

      Matias Blasi.

          I was trying to run the xts-demo application into the jboss-4.2.2 & jbossts-4.2.2 with no success...
          Now I am with jboss-5.0.0-beta4, where is the web services transcation support here?

          The web services transaction component of JBoss AS is currently delivered as a separately bundled deliverable and can be built from the code in the JBossTS project XTS directory. It is not yet ready for inclusion in AS 5.0 although I should be checking a version into trunk in the next week or so which will work with AS 5.0Beta4. You can expect an implementation of WS-C/AT/BA 1.0 to be integrated into the full (non-beta) AS 5.0 community release as a .sar.

          What was the problem you had getting the xts demo to work in 4.2.2? It has been tested in that environment and should work ok.

            I tried the xts-demo with the jboss 4.2.2 default server profile I have this error message in the ui:

            "Transaction failed! Cause: com.arjuna.wst.SystemException: VersionMismatch[html]"

            Later, I understood that it should be run with tha all server profile, but after following the jbossts-full-4.2.2.GA INSTALL instructions, I couldn't start the server :(

            This is the output:

              There is a problem displaye din the log here but it is nothing to do with XTS

              14:04:11,461 INFO [tsmxLogger] Registering mbean for module 'jta'
              14:04:11,461 INFO [tsmxLogger] Registering mbean for module 'txoj'

              14:04:11,461 INFO [tsmxLogger] Registering mbean for module 'jta'

              It looks like you have installed both the jbossjts and jbossjta jars in your JBoss AS server lib directory. You should only install one of these, along with the version of jbossjta-integration.jar which was built with it. Fix this and try again.

                My request for the xts-demo app is the following:


                I think that it should be another mistake from me...

                I remember you that I follow the INSTALLA from jbossts-full-4.2.2.GA step by step very carefully, twice...

                Thank you in advance!

                  Ok, I believe this is due to a bug that we have patched in a later release -- see the following JIRA for details:


                  The problem detailed in this JIRA is a misplaced flush operation which means the server is not seeing the client data. It manifests as a version mismatch because that is the first thing which is checked. This used to work but was broken when the HTTP code switched to use buffering in the HTTP request output stream.

                  The relevant fixes were made to class


                  at the revision detailed in the JIRA. You can either backpatch your release with these changes or upgrade to 4.3.0Beta2.

                        Hello, i am here again...

                        I have downloaded the jbossts-full-4.3.0.BETA2-src.zip... because i didn't find a binary distribution of this version...

                        I have built it, with

                        ant jbossjts

                        Later, I have replaced the jbossjts.jar, jbossjts-jacorb.jts, jbossjts-integration.jar, jbossjts-common.jar and jacorb.jar in the jboss_422 folder and jbossts_422 folder with the new generated ones from the jboss_430_b2 src.

                        Before that, I rebuild the xts-demo application, started the jboss as, and deploy the app.

                        Finally i have the same error...
                        13:31:55,295 INFO [STDOUT] com.arjuna.wst.SystemException: VersionMismatch[html]

                        Any idea what is my problem now?

                        Thanks you in advance!

                          Please help me....

                          I couldn't make it work....

                          I need some kind of step by step of how to integrate the jobossts-4.3 with into the jboss-4.2.2GA...

                          I only found the source packaging of the jbossts-4.3 and after build it, i put the jts related jars into the jboss 422 folders... but i still have the same error...

                          I will thank you a lot if you give me some guide...

                          Thanks in advance!

                            If you used 'ant jts' in the root then you've only built the JTS. You want to build XTS. Go into XTS and run ant.
