Administering the transaction service on Liberty

Liberty provides many of the same transaction services that are provided in the WebSphere® Application Server traditional. If an application uses two or more resources, Liberty transaction manager coordinates the updates to all the resource managers under the control of a global transaction. In Liberty, transaction services are implicitly activated when you specify features that require the use of transactions; for example, jpa-2.0, jdbc-4.0, and wasJmsServer-1.0.
