Hi all,

I have a new mission... I must make a two-phase commit with Mule or ServiceMix. Which is the easiest for you?? I have no knowledge in soa, eai and esb. The start point of my application is a jsf web form with different field. Data must be stored in a database and in a ldap. For now, it's just a model. But I think is a good start point to integrate an enterprise service bus. Could you give me some advice. Which technologies are the best to do that? How must I manage transaction in the esb?

Thanks a lot

Re: two phase commit
Hi Andrew,

Two-phase commit is not that easy to start with. Currently Mule supports XA transactions for JMS, JDBC and VM transports (see So storing data in a database can be done with JDBC, but the LDAP storage is a bit difficult. For ServiceMix you are dependent on the JCA and JMS transport to create a transactional message flow ( Single resource transactions are of course far more easy. So the question you should ask yourself first, do I really need a two-phase commit to do the database and LDAP storage.

Best regards,
