    JTA Support Clarification

    Luis Miranda Newbie

      Hi,

      Is JTA support used strictly for replication purposes in JBoss Cache (3.0.0.CR3) or is there full transactional support even in a local cache (i.e. atomicity and isolation from other transactions within the same JVM)? In other words, can I roll back some puts after I have done them?

      Also, according to the FAQ it is not possible to have a JBC participate in a global/XA transaction (together with the RDBMS). If that's the case, what approach should be taken to ensure consistency between the two resources?

      Many thanks,
      Luis

          No, they can be used for consistency guarantees in LOCAL mode too.

          That's not true, a JTA transaction can span databases too - it is just that internally, JBC will not propagate this to a transaction-aware cache loader (such as JDBC) but instead will use its own lifecycle of prepares and commits on the cache loader.

          If you have a DB outside of the cache participating in the same JTA transaction, this is supported.

            Clearly something is misconfigured on my end. Thank you for confirming my suspicions! :)
