Hi,

What are the good options for using JTA with tomcat ?

googling suggested JOTM, BTM , Atomikos and Jencks but reference is from 2002, are there any new or better options?

I am using tomcat 6.0.16

-P

If you meant JTA as in Java Transaction Architecture, Tomcat doesn't get involved in that. If a webapp is using something like an ORM, the ORM may require a copy of the jta jar to be included in the webapp itself. One of the major differences between Tomcat and the full-stack J2EE servers is, in fact, the lack of built-in persistence management functions.

Hi Tim,

I understand tomcat doesnot support JTA, so I am looking for some 3rd party jar file that will hepl, I am not using any ORM, just spring and jdbc.

I think there's only one jta jar source and you can get it from Sun. It's also published via Maven as javax.transaction.jta/jta-1.1.jar.
