TitleException "The server failed to resume the transaction" occurs when using explicit transactions with the JDBC SQL Server driver
URL Name2813
Article Number000121280
EnvironmentProduct: Connect for JDBC SQL Server Driver
Version: All supported versions
OS: All supported platforms
Database: SQL Server
Application: Java
Question/Problem Description
Application calls a stored procedure that starts and commits a transaction, which is an explicit transaction.  When using the JDBC SQL Server driver, an exception occurs intermittently when executing the stored procedure.
Steps to Reproduce
Clarifying Information
Error Message[DataDirect][SQLServer JDBC Driver][SQLServer]The server failed to resume the transaction.
Defect Number
Enhancement Number
The JDBC SQL Server driver requires that a transaction descriptor provided by the server be included with each request.  With each new unit of work triggered by a commit or rollback, the current transaction descriptor changes and the driver must use the new one for all subsequent requests.  If the current transaction is ended by the stored procedure, the driver's transaction descriptor is stale and the next request it sends to the server will fail with the "failed to resume transaction" error.  Using the JDBC API to commit allows the driver to know that it needs to update its descriptor.
Explicit transactions are not supported in stored procedures or SQL statements with the Connect for JDBC SQL Server driver.  Transactions should be managed only via the JDBC API method calls.
