DB2 and ORACLE in XA transaction

P: n/a
Hi!

I'm using DB2 database on one server and ORACLE database on the second one.
I want to move some data from ORACLE database to DB2 database and update
some columns on ORACLE database so I know what rows were transfered. I'd
like to do this in a distributed XA transaction and Java. :)
How is this possible ?

Best regards,
Kovi

I'm not sure what your question is. My answer would be: open one XA
transaction to DB2, another one to Oracle, do the operations you want to
do, then perform a two-phase commit.

Or alternatively purchase Oracle's Heterogeneous Services (formerly
Transparent Gateway). But without version information you are asking
people to shoot in the dark.

Thanks for you answer. Maybe I was a bit unclear.
On one server I have an ORACLE database (don't know what version, yet :)) ).
One another I have DB2 v9.1. Now I want to move data from ORACLE to DB2 and
from DB2 to ORACLE. Using distributed transactions would allow me to do
commit/rollback on both ends, right? I'm using Java and don't know how to
do it (yet). :))
Now I have something like this:
// Open connection to ORACLE
Connection oracleConn = DriverManager.getConnection(....);
oracleConn.setautoCommit(false);
// Open connection to DB2
Connection db2Conn = DriverManager.getConnection(....);
db2Conn.setautoCommit(false);

// select data from DB2
ResultSet rs = db2Conn.createStatement().executeQuery("SELECT * FROM
TABLE1");
while (rs.next() == true)
{
// insert data into ORACLE
// update some rows in DB2
}

db2Conn.commit(); // 1
oracleConn.commit(); // 2
In this example these is an error since commit to db2Conn (1) and be
performed and commit to oracleConn (2) can fail and I end up with data I
don't want to have. :))

I'm curious how to do the XA transactions? Do I have to use something like
DriverManager.getXAConnection() ?

Best regards,
Kovi

Hi,
You would need to use the jdbc calls for XA, you can look
them up in the manuals. You will have other problems though,
if you do this, then you will be playing the role of TM,
which, if your application is serious and not a simple toy,
then playing this role is quite a lot of work as you need to
keep track of transaction id's, server responses, etc in a
reliable way, just to ensure correctness in case one or both
of the databases go down, and transactions are not left
pending.

OR, you could just use DB2's federated capability to do what
you want. I've used it between oracle and db2 and it works
fine. It takes care of the TM role for you, and you need no
programming, just some configuration steps, then access db2
through jdbc as if it was a single database and forget about
multiple databases.

Its a separately licensed feature, not sure if you can
afford it, but would definitely save you lots of work.

One way is to use Federation. The NET8 wrapper for Oracle supports XA,
and the SQL would be simple if your Oracle tables are mapped into the
DB2 database as Nicknames.

Another option is to use DB2 Federation to create a nickname in the
DB2 database for the Oracle table(s). The NET8 wrapper supports XA for
two phase commit:

http://publib.boulder.ibm.com/infoce...iyfqtpc01.html

This would make your SQL very simple because it would be the same as
moving rows around within a DB2 database.

You can also do this from the other direction - use heterogeneous
services from the Oracle database to copy the rows from Oracle to DB2
and then update the Oracle rows.

See
http://download-west.oracle.com/docs....htm#sthref343

Heterogeneous Services are included for free in all Oracle databases
from Oracle8i onwards, but they use ODBC as the comm layer. If you want
something more performant than an ODBC connection, there are the
specific Transparent Gateways available for cost - in this case see the
DRDA one at
http://download-west.oracle.com/docs...b16218/toc.htm

Usage is the same - simply set up a DBLink (remote_db2_db) over
heterogeneous services or the DRDA Transparent Gateway and issue
something like

INSERT INTO remote_db2_table@remote_db2_db SELECT column_list FROM
local_oracle_table;

where you are connected to Oracle, and remote_db2_table is the DB2 table
that you want to insert into on the other side of the remote_db2_db DBLink.

You could wrap this in the begin transaction/commit with an update to
the local oracle table as well.

Alternatively, the COPY command issued from SQLPlus is very efficient

COPY FROM SCOTT/TIGER@local_oracle_db INSERT
remote_db2_table@remote_db2_db USING SELECT * FROM local_oracle_table;

You seem to have a lot of Oracle knowledge. Do you have any idea on the
price of the Oracle Transparent Gateway for IBM DRDA? I am in fear of a
price similar to the IBM WebSphere Federation Server ($125,000!!!).

Going to store.oracle.com and searching for "DB2" will give you a list
of products and prices. Buying from an Oracle sales rep will often save
you money. The prices I see on the site are listed in hundreds of
dollars ... not hundreds of thousands of dollars.

Similar to the ODBC interface, presuming that Oracle can serve as an
OLEDB provider (or a webservice provider...) once can write an OLEDB
table function or webservice. That would be free.
OLEDB of course assumes Windows...

Yep. For U.S.A. I show $35,000.
Still a lot if I was paying for it myself, but also a lot less than
$125,000.

I don't know where you got the 125K price for db2 with
federation. If you already have a db2 (which I guess you do
since you want to integrate it with oracle), then " adding"
the feature is not as expensive as buying a whole new
package. Also, there are several levels, there is standard,
enterprise and whatever. Seems like the 125K you found is
for the enterprise unlimeted that includes a db2 license and
all the wrappers. If you need only oracle, then you can
purchase "by wrapper". its best if you get an ibm sales rep
to help you (ok, pause so can laugh for a bit). I'm sure
that if all you want is to access 1 oracle server, you can
get it for a lot less that 125K.

Whether you go with oracle gateway or db2 federated, is
probably up to what your site has a preference for. If
you're mostly a db2 shop, you should get good pricing from
ibm, else, put the squeeze on oracle if you're an oracle
shop.
Note that the drda wrapper is free with a db2 license.

I work for Oracle. The TG for DRDA is part of the Oracle Enterprise
Integration Gateways suite which includes the TG for DRDA, the APPC
gateway, a native DB2/400 gateway, an MQSeries gateway, and the ability
to access Oracle from AS/400 programs. The suite is $35K US per server -
the server referred to is the server on which the Oracle database
resides that access these different systems.

If anyone has invested the resources required, hardware and software,
to support both DB2 and Oracle ... whatever they are doing is important
enough to do it properly.

I don't know where you got the 125K price for db2 with
federation. If you already have a db2 (which I guess you do
since you want to integrate it with oracle), then " adding"
the feature is not as expensive as buying a whole new
package. Also, there are several levels, there is standard,
enterprise and whatever. Seems like the 125K you found is
for the enterprise unlimeted that includes a db2 license and
all the wrappers. If you need only oracle, then you can
purchase "by wrapper". its best if you get an ibm sales rep
to help you (ok, pause so can laugh for a bit). I'm sure
that if all you want is to access 1 oracle server, you can
get it for a lot less that 125K.

Whether you go with oracle gateway or db2 federated, is
probably up to what your site has a preference for. If
you're mostly a db2 shop, you should get good pricing from
ibm, else, put the squeeze on oracle if you're an oracle
shop.
Note that the drda wrapper is free with a db2 license.

Our IBM Business Partner also quoted us a similar price, less a bit of a
discount.
If it's true that you can buy only the wrappers you really need then this is
good news. Perhaps we'll have to slap our IBM BP upside the head to get us
some more realistic pricing.
