  • Transaction

    by Sandeep Khurana,

    It might be a naive question but it was mentioned that the interaction with other sub system happens using Oracle queue propagation system. It looks to me a asynchronous processing. What if a particular interaction with another sub system needs to be part of current transaction (or maybe a synchronus interaction is required) ? How this scenario is handled, if there is any? Or the transaction is supposed to be over as soon as the message is put on the queue?
