Transactions and JavaDoc for TaminoJCA.jar


I am trying to integrate Tamino transaction handling into the SimpleJTA project. This is needed in order to have transactional behaviour in our project. I am a little bit confused because I read in Tamino “Programming Cookbook” (<TAMINO_INSTALL_DIR>/Documentation/en/inoapi/ejbprog.htm#ejbprog) the following:

[i]A distributed transaction (“XATransaction”) is managed by a transaction coordinator and can contain operations for many resource managers. The transaction coordinator uses the 2-phase commit protocol to coordinate the participating resource managers to guarantee the ACID properties of the transaction. A distributed transaction must be demarcated using the mechanisms provided by J2EE.

Currently, the Tamino Resource Adapter does not support distributed transactions. [/i]

At the same time I can find that there is a XAResource implementation into TaminoJCA.jar: com.softwareag.tamino.db.api.connector.xa.XAResourceImpl

Can someone tell me does Tamino supports Distributed transactions?

Where can I find the JavaDoc of the TaminoJCA.jar from?

Thank you in advance!

Hi Dobri,

Im trying to make the same work (Setup the TaminoJCA adapter) for using it in an transactional enviroment without result.

The J2EE server it’s JBoss

Any suggest will be pleased for me.
I hope we will in touch.


Have you configured your RA’s deployment descriptor for JBOSS.

For a detailed description of deployment descriptor, refer JBoss documentation in


Txu Sri, The Rar has been deployed sucessfull, but throws an exception at runtime, see:
this was solved changed the Tomcat WebAppLoader to the JBoss loader on the …deploy/jbossweb-tomcat55.sar/META-INF/jboss-service.xml change the attibute false to true and… voila…
