Oracle provides two separate technologies for the integration of Java with BEA Tuxedo servers. These technologies are called Java Online Transactions (JOLT) and the WebLogic Tuxedo Connector (WTC). Both technologies allow for the integration of systems built in Java with systems that are running on BEA Tuxedo. However while both technologies are similar in nature they are quite different in implementation and features and also solve different problems.

This support pattern deals with common issues that Oracle customers experience with the JOLT and WTC products as well as also attempting to answer some of the common questions that customers have with these products.

Full documentation for both JOLT and WTC is available on line at the Oracle web site. The URLs are:

JOLT Documentation

WTC Documentation

Please note that the information in this support pattern assumes a high level of Tuxedo skill to fully understand the issues and solutions relating to WTC and Jolt.
