    Transactions timing out?

    greigm Newbie

      Can anyone help me figure out my problem, I basically have a simple jsp deployed in a web-app (war) which uses JNDI to lookup an EJB3 stateless Bean and execute a single method. The method loads a large amount of data from a table into memory then loops through this data, performing a select to find a related record and updating/inserting any changes.

      All done through a single xa Datasource (MSSQL2000 using jtds). I'm finding that the process can perform thousands of SQL statements then suddenly I receive:

      2007-07-12 14:06:35,841 WARN [com.arjuna.ats.arjuna.logging.arjLoggerI18N] [com.arjuna.ats.arjuna.coordinator.BasicAction_58] - Abort of action id -3f57feef:6e1:469615dd:e0 invoked while multiple threads active within it.

       at org.jboss.resource.adapter.jdbc.WrapperDataSource.getConnection(WrapperDataSource.java:94)


      All SQL is performed in the old fashioned getDatasource->getConnection->getStatement old-school JDBC commands and not via Entity or other persistence tools.

      The error seems to happen after a large number of selects with no inserts/updates - my question, is there an implied transaction which times out because there have been no inserts/updates for a long time (even though there have been selects)? If so is there any way to prevent this timeout?
