    Orace9i, JBoss 3.0, and XA.

      We're trying to get XA going with Oracle9i ( running on Linux 7.2) and JBoss 3.0 (running on Win2K - but will eventually run on the Linux box.)

      When we come up to the first update statement, the app hangs. This update is not put into a UserTransaction (because it's not needed in this segment of code.)

      If I go into sql plus and try to update the record after running the app, it appears locked and sql plus hangs as well.

      We're newbies to XA so any info would be helpful. I'm not sure if I left something out of the Oracle install/configuration, if it's a JBoss config issue, or our code.

      Here's the method to get the connection:

      public Connection getDbConnection() throws java.rmi.RemoteException {
      try {
      Context ctx = new InitialContext();
      DataSource ds =
      return ds.getConnection("security", "security0");
      } catch (Exception e){
      throw new RemoteException(
      "Exception in " + getClass().getName() +
      ".getDbConnection()", e);

      Here's the update:

      try {
      uDao = new UserDao(conn);
      } catch (Exception e) {
      throw new RemoteException(
      getClass().getName() + ".new UserDao(conn)", e);


      which looks like:

      Statement statement = conn.createStatement();
      String sql = getUpdateStatement();

      And here's the relevant part of orace-xa-service.xml:

      <mbean code="org.jboss.resource.connectionmanager.XATxConnectionManager"
      <!--make the rar deploy! hack till better deployment-->

      <depends optional-attribute-name="ManagedConnectionFactoryName">

      Do not try to set transaction isolation level here or you'll get
      java.sql.SQLException: ORA-01453: SET TRANSACTION must be first statement of transaction
      Read committed is a default isolation level for Oracle, so there
      is not real need to set it here. I'll take a look into it later ...maybe.
