    experiencing "BitronixXAException: resource already started on XID a Bitronix XID"

    James Yu Newbie

      Hi,

       

      I embed jbpm (6.1.0) in a webapp built on spring framework (3.1.2), and it run well for most of the time.

      However, I receive "BitronixXAException" from time to time, and I have to restart my tomcat instance whenever it occurs.

      Following is the final part of exception stack trace:

      I found a discussion on similar issue back in 2011:

      Bitronix Transaction Manager - Getting "bitronix.tm.internal.BitronixXAException: resource already started on XID" error

      "

      I think after some investigation I'm

      leaning toward this being an application issue and not something

      inherently wrong in Bitronix.  I wrote a simple little test and verified

      that this error happens whenever a javax.sql.Connection gets reused

      across multiple concurrent transactions in different threads.  So I

      think there is probably something going wrong "above" the tm/pooling layer.

      "

      Unfortunately, this discussion is yet unsolved.

       

      I wonder what may cause this exception and how can I avoid or workaround it?

       

      Thank you for your time.
