    Transaction Manager

    James House Newbie

      The JBoss documentation says that the default transaction manager has the following limitation:

      "It does not do transactional logging, and is thus incapable of automated recovery after a server crash".

      Is there a TM available other than the default one? If so, where do I find info about it? Also, what is the mechanism for "manual" recovery?

      -- Doesn't this problem make the default TM unusable in a production environment??? (especially if using XA?)

      Thanks,
      James

          You can check the Tyrex TM, however I don't know the details of its recovery options.

          Only if you anticipate your server crashing alot.

            The default TM is unusable (or, at least, is not safely usable) when you have a transaction that must be propagated to other servers, or a transaction that uses more than one XA resource.
