Interoperating transactionally between application servers

We can configure application servers so that transaction messages are sent and received between application servers at different versions of WAS. Depending on the version of the application server, we can set system properties, or use the transaction coordination authorization setting.

The transaction manager in WebSphere Application Server supports transactional interoperation with other transaction managers through either the CORBA Object Transaction Service (OTS) protocol, or, for JSR-109 compliant requests, the Web Services Atomic Transaction (WS-AT) protocol. Also, the transaction manager can coordinate XA resource managers and be coordinated by Java EE Connector Architecture 1.5 resource adapters.
