Another article on Distributed transactions

3 02 2009

I found this new article at at JavaWorld, written by Dr. David Syer, who works for SpringSource . The article elaborates on using different transactional strategies/patterns and provides some advice on which strategy/pattern to use in a particular scenario.

The emphasis was primarily on using distributed transactions without XA (read overhead), of course, with some trade-offs. I found it very informative.

My article – XA transactions using Spring framework.

I recently authored my second article at JavaWorld. It mainly demonstrates how one can utilize distributed transactions (JTA/XA) in standalone Java applications. The article focuses on how one can integrate different standalone JTA implementations (JBossTS, Atomikos and Bitronix) using the widely popular Spring framework. Please let me know your comments, if you get a chance to read.
