I have been struggling hard to get my JBoss/Oracle XA to work. Finally its up and running.
Here is a list of TODOs to get JBoss/Oracle XA datasource:
1. Use JDK 1.4 2. Oracle server requires JVM to be installed $ORACLE_HOME/javavm/install/initjvm.sql should be run as sys Oracle user. 3. Make sure you have the correct oracle-xa-service.xml. The default file seems to be faulty.
I would appreciate if any corrections/suggestions can be added to this posting by other users.
