Symptoms

Websphere Application Server which is using the Oracle JDBC driver to connect to an 11.1.0.7.0 database is getting an XAER_RMERR returned when the database is aborted. This causes issues for the automatic recovery of these XA transactions.

The oracle JDBC code is mapping the ORA-01092 error reported to these sessions to XAER_RMERR instead of XAER_RMFAIL
