JTA platform implementation intended for use with WebSphere Application Server (WAS).
WAS, unlike every other app server on the planet, does not allow direct access to the JTS TransactionManager.
Instead, for common transaction-related tasks users must utilize a proprietary API known as ExtendedJTATransaction.
Even more unfortunate, the exact TransactionManagerLookup to use inside of WAS is highly dependent upon
- WAS version
- the WAS container in which Hibernate will be utilized
This class is reported to work on WAS version 6 in any of the standard J2EE/JEE component containers.
