    Integrating JBoss v4.2.3.GA with JBossTS v4.8.0.GA

    Alexandre Verri Newbie

      Hi members,

      I would like to integrate my JBoss v4.2.3 with JBoss Transactions v4.8.0 (standalone, installed as a service).

      How can I configure JBoss to use the JBoss Transactions?

          remind me again why I bother to write documentation?

          from the INSTALL file:

          "JBossTS 4.8.GA is designed for use standalone or with JBossAS 6 alpha. It is not suitable for use with earlier versions of JBossAS."

          from the wiki (http://www.jboss.org/community/wiki/JBossTransactionsVersionGuide):

          If you are running with JBossAS 4.2, use the bundled JTA or JBossTS 4.2.3.SP7.
          If you are running with JBossAS 5.1, use the bundled JTA/JTS or JBossTS 4.6.x
          If your are running with JBossAS 6 dev versions (i.e. AS trunk / Alpha / Beta) use JBossTS 4.8 and cross your fingers.

            Dear jhalliday,

            your documentation is very complete and excellent. Unfortunately, I did not see the INSTALL file, but I've readed the docs folder.

            Thank you very much and congratulations for the quality of your job.

              ok, so now perhaps we can move on to the interesting question: what is wrong with just using the transaction manager already included in the app server? Why do you want a separate install? You need remote tx propagation for something?

                Well, I'm getting an error that makes me crazy. It could be related to the JBoss transactions.

                The complete thread is discussed on Mobicents forum:
                http://groups.google.com/group/mobicents-public/browse_thread/thread/12b012f95ec234cc

                Please, see bellow: the transaction suddenly goes to aborted.

                  Transaction timing out? Turn on debug logging for the transaction system, that should show what is aborting it.

                    At the moment, the information given by transaction system does not helps a lot:

                      My guess would be heuristic rollback, but you really need the debug trace from the underlying transaction system, not just from mobicents. Or if it's reproducible, stick a debugger breakpoint in commit and step through the code to see what is generating that exception.

                        I think that is not related to transaction timeout, because I configured too high timeout.

                        One interesting think about Mobicents is that one thread could initiate the transaction and another one could finish it. I don't know if this could be the cause of the problem, as there are many other applications that works very fine with actual Mobicents version (v1.2.6.GA).
