Subject Re: [IB-Architect] Select across multiple database and XA compatability....
Author David Jencks
The ObjectSpark page (which I finally got to) appears, amid the typical
marketing obfuscation, to indicate that one connectivity option is jdbc.
In this case, the jca-jdbc driver should offer sufficient xa support. (if
they are as backward as most vendors, we would have to wrap the modern jca
interfaces with nearly identical-except-for-exceptions
XADataSource/XAConnection wrappers.)
