Hi all,

Please suggest any good book(s) that covers design and implementation of distributed/2 phase commit transaction processing for complex real time applications.

Thanks in advance.

Oh, the world of the XA compliant, two-phase commit.I think what you need is a good book on distributed programming, and a good book on JDBC.

For learning distributed programming, this is the right book:

Concurrent and Distributed Computing in Java by Vijay K. Garg

If CORBA is your cup of tea, you might be interested in this read:

Implementing Distributed Systems with Java and CORBA

There are more books on JDBC though.

For learning about JDBC, you can't beat the reference tutorials:

DBC API Tutorial and Reference by Maydene Fisher, Jon Ellis, Jonathan Bruce

Also, this book is a bit bloated, but it's one of the most up to date JDBC books around:

JDBC Recipies: Released September 2005

Happy Java, and happy JDBC!
