21.2.4. BusinessActivityManager

com.arjuna.mw.wst11.BusinessActivityManager is the class that web services typically employ. Defines how a web service interacts with the underlying business activity service implementation. A BusinessActivityManager does not represent a specific activity. Instead, it provides access to an implicit per-thread activity.

Methods

currentTransaction
Returns the TxContext for the current business activity, or NULL if there is no TxContext. The returned value can be used to enable multiple threads to execute within the scope of the same business activity. Calling the currenTransaction method does not dissociate the current thread from its activity.
suspend
Dissociates a thread from any current business activity, so that it can perform work not associated with a specific activity. The suspend method returns a TxContext instance, which is a handle on the activity. The thread is then no longer associated with any activity.
resume
Associates or re-associates a thread with a business activity, using its TxContext. Before associating or re-associating the thread, it is disassociated from any business activity with which it is currently associated. If the TxContext is NULL, the thread is disassociated with all business activities, as though the suspend method were called.

Parameters

txContext
A TxContext instance as returned by suspend, identifying the transaction to be resumed.

Exceptions

UnknownTransactionException
The business activity to which the TxContext refers is invalid in the scope of the invoking thread.
enlistForBusinessAgreementWithParticipantCompletion
Enroll the specified participant with current business activity, causing it to participate in the BusinessAgreementWithParticipantCompletion protocol. A unique identifier for the participant is also required.
The return value is an instance of BAParticipantManager which can be used to notify the coordinator of changes in the participant state. In particular, since the participant is enlisted for the Participant Completion protocol it is expected to call the completed method of this returned instance when it has completed all the work it expects to do in this activity and has made all its changes permanent. Alternatively, if the participant does not need to perform any compensation actions should some other participant fail it can leave the activity by calling the exit method of the returned BAParticipantManager instance.

Parameters

participant
An implementation of interface BusinessAgreementWithParticipantCompletionParticipant whose close, cancel, and compensate methods are called when the corresponding coordinator message is received.
id
A unique identifier for the participant. The value of this String should differ for each enlisted participant. It should also be possible for a given identifier to determine that the participant belongs to the enlisting web service rather than some other web service deployed to the same container.

Exceptions

UnknownTransactionException
No transaction is associated with the invoking thread.
WrongStateException
The transaction is not in a state where new participants may be enrolled, as when it is terminating.
enlistForBusinessAgreementWithCoordinatorCompletion
Enroll the specified participant with current activity, causing it to participate in the BusinessAgreementWithCoordinatorCompletion protocol. A unique identifier for the participant is also required.
The return value is an instance of BAParticipantManager which can be used to notify the coordinator of changes in the participant state. Note that in this case it is an error to call the completed method of this returned instance. With the Coordinator Completion protocol the participant is expected to wait until its completed method is called before it makes all its changes permanent. Alternatively, if the participant determines that it has no changes to make, it can leave the activity by calling the exit method of the returned BAParticipantManager instance.

Parameters

participant
An implementation of interface BusinessAgreementWithCoordinatorCompletionParticipant whose completed, close, cancel and compensate methods are called when the corresponding coordinator message is received.
id
A unique identifier for the participant. The value of this String should differ for each enlisted participant. It should also be possible for a given identifier to determine that the participant belongs to the enlisting web service rather than some other web service deployed to the same container.

Exceptions

>UnknownTransactionException
No transaction is associated with the invoking thread.
WrongStateException
The transaction is not in a state where new participants may be enrolled, as when it is terminating.
