Dev analysis for transactions graceful shutdown

Version 2

    Overview

    This feature will allow EAP supported transaction services to react to suspend and resume requests. The supported services are JTA, JTS, WS-AT, and WS-BA.

    After suspend, all the services remain functional (as per Stuart’s statement on wildfly-dev [1]). All external requests bound to the existing transactions are allowed in. All external requests requiring new transaction are blocked. All remote transaction management requests, except begin, are allowed in.

    After resume, all requests are allowed in.

    After suspend timeout, all services must shutdown.

    3. EJB subsystem consults transactions subsystem, if an incoming request should be blocked, and then either blocks it or not.
