Hi, If I have a stateless session bean that is calling stored procedure or a chain of stored procedures, whose transaction is used? Is it bean's or what, can anyone explain me how this works in WebSphere? br Veera
You'd need to pick up a J2EE book and have a look at transactions, but in the broadest of terms: J2EE supports the 2-phase protocol, which allows the server to gather and combine transactions from multiple '2-phase transaction supporting locations'. Taking this back to your question, as long as the database and drivers are XA compliant (a clever way of saying 'we do that 2-phase thingy') the server maintains a transaction context, and any external transactions (like those in the database) are considered part of the server transaction. I'm going to stop here, since I've exhausted my knowledge on the area
I’ve looked at a lot of different solutions, and in my humble opinion Aspose is the way to go. Here’s the link: http://aspose.com
