IBM® WebSphere® eXtreme Scale is a powerful product for scalable high-speed storing and processing of data. WebSphere eXtreme Scale itself is transactional but is often used with other software products that are also transactional. Integrating these transactions, especially integrating WebSphere eXtreme Scale into an XA (global) transaction, can be far from trivial. This article explains two techniques for integrating WebSphere eXtreme Scale and other transactional products so that work for all can be reliably committed in a single transaction that follows ACID principles. Sample code for these techniques is provided, including using the new resource adapter for IBM WebSphere Application Server that enables WebSphere eXtreme Scale to participate in a global (XA) transaction. This content is part of the IBM WebSphere Developer Technical Journal.
