I am working on distributed transactions. I am trying to implement XA transaction using Atomikos as the Transaction Manager. One of my issues is being able to get a "XADataSource" from the DB2 database hosted on the Websphere 6.1 server. I am using jndi lookup to get the Datasource as below:
However, this lookup causes the following exception:
The same works fine if attribute "ds" is of type DataSource instead of XADataSource. But I want get XAConnections and hence require XADataSource. I have tried searching a lot but am unable to figure out how to avoid this cast exception. Any pointers on what i should do differently?
