Transaction Management




PO07575, WorkItem:217150 - Application throws an exception on server restart when a non transactional function is invoked.


Issue Description:


The application was throwing an exception on server restart when the following criteria were being satisfied:


  • JMX Stats was switched on.
  • The property '' was set to 'false'.
  • A non-transaction facade method (i.e. annotation set to "tx=false") was being invoked.


Once this initial exception was thrown under these circumstances, the server JVM was left in a bad state and all subsequent calls failed.




The exception was being thrown due to an attempt to log JMX data when invoking a non-transaction method and that method did not have a database connection created for it. It has been resolved by ensuring that for non-transaction methods, a database connection exists before any further processing is invoked for that method.
