OTS11 — What happens to the existing transaction context on resume?

  • Key: OTS11-10
  • Legacy Issue Number: 3308
  • Status: open  
  • Source: IONA ( Derek Thomson)
  • Summary:

    According to the OTS spec, there is no guaranteed way to get the previous
    transaction back after calling Current::resume with another transaction.

    Current::commit and Current::rollback only restore the previous transaction
    context if the same thread started the transaction - otherwise the transaction
    context is set to null. This means that you might have lost the previous
    transaction that was replaced by "resume" ... or not, depending on where it was
    created.

    Is this desirable behaviour, considering that this suffers from the requirement
    to keep track of all the transactions ever created by each thread? Why not just
    restore the previous transaction context on commit and rollback?
