Websphere Application Server may generates errors like the following:

[1/19/10 16:17:01:725 GMT] 00000013 WSRdbXaResour E DSRA0304E: XAException occurred. XAException contents and details are: The cause is : null.
[1/19/10 16:17:01:728 GMT] 00000013 WSRdbXaResour E DSRA0302E: XAException occurred. Error code is: XAER_RMERR (-3). Exception is: <null>
[1/19/10 16:17:01:730 GMT] 00000013 XARminst E WTRN0037W: The transaction service encountered an error on an xa_recover operation. The resource was com.ibm.ws.rsadapter.spi.WSRdbXaResourceImpl@fe40fe4. The error code was XAER_RMERR. The exception stack trace follows: javax.transaction.xa.XAException

at java.lang.Thread.run(Thread.java:735)

This error is very similar to the one described on the following article :

XAER_RMERR Error reported by an XA Application on Recovery [ID 436362.1]

But if these errors were fired with database, then its most probably a different issue.
