Working with JTA Transactions : Understanding application interfaces : XAConnection


In order to facilitate distributed transactions, the JDBC driver must also support the XAConnection interface. An XAConnection object is a PooledConnection object extended to participate in distributed transactions. An application that uses distributed transactions obtains a physical connection to the data source through an XAConnection object. The J2EE server is responsible for managing the connections and distributed transactions.
