Distributed Transaction Management

Distributed transactions can take place in an environment where an external transaction manager coordinates transaction execution using a specific protocol, such as X/Open XA. SAP ASE supports transactions using the CICS, Encina, TUXEDO, and MSDTC transaction managers through the DTM XA interface to SAP ASE.

Note: SAP ASE with the DTM XA interface provides features that were previously part of the XA-Server product. The XA-Server product is not required and is not included with SAP ASE. See the XA Interface Integration Guide for CICS, Encina, and TUXEDO for information about the DTM XA interface.
