Global or client XA transactions allow the Teiid JDBC API to participate in transactions that are beyond the scope of a single client resource. For this use the Teiid DataSource Class for establishing connections.
When the DataSource is used in the context of a UserTransaction in an application server, such as JBoss, WebSphere, or Weblogic, the resulting connection will already be associated with the current XA transaction. No additional client JDBC code is necessary to interact with the XA transaction.
In the case that you are not running in a JEE container environment and you have your own transaction manger to co-ordinate the XA transactions, code will look some what like below.
With the use of global transactions multiple Teiid XAConnections may participate in the same transaction. It is important to note that the Teiid JDBC XAResource "isSameRM" method only returns "true", if connections are made to the same server instance in a cluster. If the Teiid connections are to different server instances then transactional behavior may not be the same as if they were to the same cluster member. For example, if the client transaction manager uses the same XID for each connection, duplicate XID exceptions may arise from the same physical source accessed through different cluster members. If the client transaction manager uses a different branch identifier for each connection, issues may arise with sources that lock or isolate changes based upon branch identifiers.
