"transactionBranchesLooselyCoupled" Option For JBoss (Doc ID 2751422.1)

Last updated on FEBRUARY 16, 2021

Applies to:

JDBC - Version 18.3 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


When using the IBM WebSphere Application Server together with Oracle databases, there is the known problem that some datasets are (non-deterministically) not persisted in the Oracle database, although no Exception is thrown. Therefore, data could become inconsistent without notification about this corruption. To solve this problem, the configuration option "transactionBranchesLooselyCoupled" was introduced and could be set for datasources using Oracle databases within the IBM WebSphere Application Server.

Must this (or a similar) option also be set to guarantee that no loss of data occurs when using the JBoss Application Server, instead of Websphere, together with Oracle databases?
