Recommended Readings

Must read

If you are seriously considering using an XA transaction manager in your application, it is highly recommended to read Mike Spille's XA Exposed I, II and III.
Those blog posts summarize the most important things one should know about XA and - cherry on the cake - are quite pleasant to read.


The JTA specification is a good read to get in-depth details. The XA Specification should be read in parallel as the JTA spec implicitly depends on it.


  • A JavaWorld article has been written about XA transactions and Spring. It uses and briefly discusses BTM as well as other transaction managers. Examples with source code are provided. Note that this article speaks about the beta version of BTM so examples might need to be changed a bit.
  • A nice blog entry.
