13.9. Using the XTS Module

XTS, which is the Web Services component of JBoss Transaction Service, can be installed to provide WS-AT and WS-BA support for web services hosted on the Enterprise Application Platform. The module is packaged as a Service Archive (.sar) located in <JBOSS_HOME>/docs/examples/transactions/.

Procedure 13.1. Installing the XTS Module

  1. Create a subdirectory in the <JBOSS_HOME>/server/[name]/deploy/ directory, called jbossxts.sar/.
  2. Unpack the .sar, which is a ZIP archive, into this new directory.
  3. Restart JBoss Enterprise Application Platform for the module to be active.
The server must use either the JTA or JTS module, as well as JBossWS Native.


XTS is not currently expected to work with other JBossWS backends such as CXF. The default XTS configuration is suitable for most deployments. It automatically detects information about the network interfaces and port bindings from the EAP configuration. manual configuration changes are only necessary for deployments whose applications need to use a transaction coordinator on a separate host. Consult the JBoss Web Service Transactions Programmer's Guide for more information.
Developers can link against the jbossxts-api.jar file included in the XTS Service Archive, but should avoid packaging it with their applications, to avoid classloading problems. All other JAR files contain internal implementation classes and should not be used directly.
Consult <JBOSS_HOME>/docs/examples/transactions/README.txt for more configuration information. The JBoss Web Services Transactions User Guide contains information about using XTS in your applications.
