Download Description

IBM® WebSphere® eXtended Transaction Runtime (WXTR) is a distributed online transaction processing environment for hosting COBOL and C applications with IBM WebSphere Application Server (WAS).WXTR provides native runtime connectivity between Java Platform Enterprise Edition (J2EE) and COBOL or C applications, significantly easing integration required for composite applications in an enterprise environment. Through tight-integration with the system management capability of WAS, you can achieve easy deployment, administration, and optimization of services.

WXTR V2.1 extends language coverage to applications written in C, along with COBOL and now supports Oracle Database, in addition to IBM DB2, as resource managers. It has improvements in integration with WAS through support for global transactions, security context propagation, and provides support for clustered deployments using WebSphere Application Server Network Deployment (WAS ND).
