Hi, i've encounterd the following error message from WAS and having headache troubleshouting it. We're using WAS 5.1 and Oracle 9i. The datasource is configured to use oracle.jdbc.xa.client.OracleXADataSource in order to handle global transaction across different datasource. We obtain the data source connection through thin client.

I have not been able to find out any specific pattern on when this exception is thrown. It seems to try doing some data recovery with Oracle yet failed. Between it seems to cause my server out of memory error. Appreciate if anyone can enlighten me in any aspect. Thanks.

You got to remove the transaction logs. They are under the tranlog directory under WAS.

Since you said this -- > "We obtain the data source connection through thin client"

I suspect that the thin driver isnt the one you should be using... use the XA driver and see.

Thanks for the two replies so far.

1) I've removed the translog once. At that time, it actually caused WAS failed to start up. By the way, i suppose this translog is meant for the database to handle transaction in process, so that in case of any rollback, they can recover to the original state. Shouldnt it be done gracefully?

2) the thin client means the URL to oracle. we use 'jdbc racle:thin:@localhost:1521:sample' instead of 'jdbc racle ci8:@sample' for thick driver. Between i am already using an XA driver to handle global transaction
