Was getting the following oracle exception when trying to use an Oracle XA datasource from WebSphere:
WSRdbXaResour E DSRA0304E: XAException occurred. XAException contents and details are: The XA Error is : -3 The XA Error message is : A resource manager error has occured in the transaction branch. The Oracle Error code is : 65535 The Oracle Error message is: Internal XA Error The cause is : null. [8/13/08 14:22:50:777 EDT] 00000066 WSRdbXaResour E DSRA0302E: XAException occurred. Error code is: XAER_RMERR (-3). Exception is: <null>
This led me to the standard “Oracle is not configured to support XA”. Alas, the admin ran the scripts and we continued to get it.
We were also getting
OracleLobHand E org.springframework.jdbc.support.lob.OracleLobHandler $OracleLobCreator close Could not free Oracle LOB java.sql.SQLException: Protocol violation
Then the version of the jdbc driver caught my eye:
InternalOracl I DSRA8205I: JDBC driver name : Oracle JDBC driver InternalOracl I DSRA8206I: JDBC driver version : 188.8.131.52.0 InternalOracl I DSRA8212I: DataStoreHelper name is: com.ibm.websphere.rsadapter.Oracle10gDataStoreHelper@218a218a. WSRdbDataSour I DSRA8208I: JDBC driver type : ""
Notice that a very old 9i driver was in use connecting to our 10g database. I upgraded the driver to 10.2.0.3 and the problem was resolved.
