While waiting for something to compile at 1am on the night before the night before Christmas, I came across Andrew's brush with JBossTS. There are some interesting quotes, like "JBossTS hasn't been built or developed using eclipse as far as I can tell" (JBossTS began life years before there was such a thing as Eclipse), and "Documentation surrounding great software tools is sometimes just laughable" (I like to think our docs are pretty good, given they've been updated for the past 20 years; but nothing's perfect) but overall I understand some of his concerns. The blog trail hasn't been updated since July, but if you're still struggling with this, get in touch here or ask questions on the Design Forum: I'd be more than happy to help fill in the blanks and maybe in the process improve JBossTS based on your feedback.

This should be an interesting cross post about the evolution of transaction processing and how it has been shaped by Web Services and SOA.
