In Oracle only environments you might be much better off with database links. You could also use DB links n heterogeneous environments employing Oracle gateways but I don't have too much good experience with those and can't judge if they are better than XA transactions.
What is the purpose of distributed processing? What are the targets? On 8-Apr-08, at 5:36 AM, Charlotte Hammond wrote:
Hi All,I'm entering the world of distributed transactions for the first time. We are using the Websphere as the transaction manager. The developers have asked to have the JVM and the JAVA_XA package. I'm struggling to find any decent docs on JAVA_XA. In particular do we really need this for Oracle to participate in (rather than manage) an XA transaction?Any pointers to docs about this configuration (Oracle/Websphere/XA) for a DBA would be very welcome.Many thanks again!
