I want to use the oracle xa interface through the JDBC API.
The normal usage of the methods start, end, prepare, commit / rollback works fine.
However after a (simulated) application failure I want recover prepared database transactions and than call commit or rollback.

Therefor I use the XAResource recover method first to get the Xids of the prepared database transactions. This works fine. Afterwards I call the XAResource commit or rollback method with one of the recovered Xids and this call fails (see below). I am using the Oracle 8.1.7 jdbc:oracle:thin: driver and connect to a Oracle 8.1.6 server.

This is what I do:

1. A java application creates the OracleXADataSource, and from this an
XAConnection, a Connection and an XAResource.
With a created xid, the xa transaction is started, some work is done through the Connection instance, the xa transaction is ended and successfully prepared.
Then I close all connections and end the application.

I find a new entry in the view SYS.DBA_PENDING_TRANSACTIONS.

2. The application starts again and creates an OracleXADataSource, an XAConnection, a Connection and an XAResource. This time I use the recover method to get the recoverable xids and pick the first one to recover.

Xid [[]] rec_xids = oxar1.recover(XAResource.TMNOFLAGS);
Xid xid = rec_xids[[0]];

//oxar1.commit(xid, false);

In both cases - rollback or commit - the following exception is thrown:

java.sql.SQLException: ORA-29532: Java call terminated by uncaught Java exception: java.lang.NullPointerException
ORA-06512: at "SYS.JAVA_XA", line 0
ORA-06512: at line 1

Has anyone done something similar successfully?
Does the 8.1.6 server support committing or rolling back prepared transactions through JDBC?
Any other comments or tips are wellcome.
