Interface XAConnectionFactory

All Known Subinterfaces:
XAQueueConnectionFactory, XATopicConnectionFactory

public interface XAConnectionFactory

The XAConnectionFactory interface is a base interface for the XAQueueConnectionFactory and XATopicConnectionFactory interfaces.

Some application servers provide support for grouping JTS capable resource use into a distributed transaction (optional). To include JMS API transactions in a JTS transaction, an application server requires a JTS aware JMS provider. A JMS provider exposes its JTS support using an XAConnectionFactory object, which an application server uses to create XAConnection objects.

XAConnectionFactory objects are JMS administered objects, just like ConnectionFactory objects. It is expected that application servers will find them using the Java Naming and Directory Interface (JNDI) API.
