We are using Jboss 4.0 and JCA to connect to an external file server for read and write operations. I would like to start a distributed transaction using XAResource. There are couple of examples for getting an handle to XAConnection and XAConnectionFactory via javax.sql package and javax.jms, is there a way to start a transaction for an external resource which is not a database or a jms provider.
Can somebody please point me in the right direction. An example would really help.
