    Shouldn't a failed commit during one-phase commit optimization let EJB invocation fail?

    Torsten Römer Newbie

      In WildFly 8.2.1.Final, I have an entity manager (Oracle XA datasource) and a JCA resource adapter supporting LocalTransaction in one transaction.


      Following scenario:

      • An entity with values equal to those in the database is merged
      • The commit() of the local-tx resource fails and throws a ResourceException

      All that happens is a warning being logged:

      and the EJB invocation succeeds.


      Debugging JBoss Transaction Manager code, the following happens:

      - Since the merge doesn't do an actual update, the outcome of the prepare phase is TwoPhaseOutcome.PREPARE_READONLY

      - So, 1PC optimization is applied and a one phase commit is done, whose outcome is TwoPhaseOutcome.ONE_PHASE_ERROR since commit() throws a ResourceException

      - The error is not considered, the outcome is TwoPhaseOutcome.PREPARE_ONE_PHASE_COMMITTED, the transaction completes and a warning is logged


      I think this is unexpected - I would expect the EJB to receive a RollbackException since the commit failed with XAException.XA_RBROLLBACK.


      I also think it is inconsistent - because the transaction fails as expected if:

      - The LocalTransaction resource whose commit() fails is the only participant in the transaction (so it is a "normal" 1PC, not a 2PC that was 1PC optimized)

      - The outcome of the XA datasource is not TwoPhaseOutcome.PREPARE_READONLY (so 1PC optimization is not applied)


      So I reported this as a bug: [JBTM-2584] Failed commit during one-phase commit optimization only logs warning and lets EJB invocation succeed - JBoss…


      What is your take on this? What would you expect to happen - just a warning or the transaction to fail?
