          There is an example here https://github.com/cmoulliard/sparks/tree/master/fuse-webinars/camel-persistence-part2/dao-jta using OpenJPA. Should be similar with Hibernate if you are using JPA config rather than Hibernate specific config.

            Thanks a lot for the example.


            Kindly let me know if there is some example for handaling multiple entityManagerFactory.





            And i want to add the transaction support at business layer .


            business layer function


            public void insertUpdateData(){

              I think you will need to create a persistence unit for each DB like explained here:

                what should be the value of hibernate.transaction.manager_lookup_class in case of servicemix

                  I also read on fuse site :

                  The X/Open XA standard describes a standardized interface for integrating resources with a transaction manager. If you want to manage a transaction that includes more than one resource, it is essential that the participating resources support the XA standard. Resources that support the XA standard expose a special object, the XA switch, which enables transaction managers (or TP monitors) to take control of their transactions. The XA standard supports both the 1-phase commit protocol and the 2-phase commit protocol



                  Please let meknow if there is any example of this.

                    I haven't looked at the latest version of Hibernate so I'm not sure if they have OSGi support for this type of element yet. In the past I just created a custom one like so:


                    import java.util.Properties;
                    import javax.transaction.Transaction;
                    import javax.transaction.TransactionManager;
                    import org.eclipse.osgi.internal.baseadaptor.DefaultClassLoader;
                    import org.hibernate.transaction.TransactionManagerLookup;
                    import org.osgi.framework.BundleContext;
                    import org.osgi.framework.InvalidSyntaxException;
                    import org.osgi.util.tracker.ServiceTracker;
                    public class OsgiTransactionManagerLookup implements TransactionManagerLookup {
                        private static TransactionManager transactionManager;
                        public TransactionManager getTransactionManager(Properties props) {
                            try {
                                if (transactionManager == null) {
                                    DefaultClassLoader classLoader = (DefaultClassLoader) this.getClass().getClassLoader();
                                    BundleContext context = classLoader.getBundle().getBundleContext();
                                    ServiceTracker serviceTracker = new ServiceTracker(context, context.createFilter("(objectClass=javax.transaction.TransactionManager)"), null);            
                                    transactionManager = (TransactionManager) serviceTracker.getService();
                            } catch (InvalidSyntaxException e) {
                                throw new IllegalStateException("No javax.transaction.TransactionManager found as OSGi service.", e);
                            return transactionManager;
                        public String getUserTransactionName() {
                             return "java:comp/UserTransaction";  
                        public Object getTransactionIdentifier(Transaction transaction) {
                            return transaction;

                      This just means if you want to use XA (like enlisting several resources like brokers, DBs, etc in a single TX) you have to make sure the resources themselves are XA aware. Oracle definitely is and probably Postgres too.

                        I am getting Caused by: org.hibernate.HibernateException: The chosen transaction strategy requires access to the JTA TransactionManager



                        1. I have daos where i am using persistence unit to enject the entityManager

                        2. in Service layer i have function which call oracleDao and PostgresDao


                        My persistence_oracle.xml
