Hi all,

I think this is a dumb question since I know very less about SOA.

Is transaction processing handled differently in SOA applications ( which involves diffferent applications on different servers using multiple same/different databases) when compared to a less complex J2ee application (wherein there is a single database and the overall transaction management is taken care by the application server)?

Also any pointers to related articles/books is highly appreciated.

Thanks in advance for your valuable time and interest.

You are probably SOL with SOA. There is no multi-phase commit for distributed transactions built into the SOA world. Instead you wind up writing "compensating transactions" to reverse what you just did.
 
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
