Chapter 3. The Batching API

The Batching API is used when the Red Hat JBoss Data Grid cluster is the sole participant in a transaction. However, Java Transaction API (JTA) transactions (which use the Transaction Manager) are used when multiple systems are participants in the transaction.

Note

The Batching API cannot be used in JBoss Data Grid's Remote Client-Server mode.

3.1. About Java Transaction API

Red Hat JBoss Data Grid supports configuring, use of, and participation in Java Transaction API (JTA) compliant transactions.
JBoss Data Grid does the following for each cache operation:
  1. First, it retrieves the transactions currently associated with the thread.
  2. If not already done, it registers an XAResource with the transaction manager to receive notifications when a transaction is committed or rolled back.
