How to use Olingo with JTA

Hi all,

I'm going through the SAP HANA Cloud End-to-End-Development Scenarios and need some help on how to use Olingo + JPA.

The tutorial shows how to use Resource Local Persistence Units with Olingo.

I'd like to use JTA (and therefore Container Managed Transactions) with Olingo.

For instance, it would be great to inject an EntityManager into the

PersonsListServiceFactory, which extends ODataJPAServiceFactory

could that be done (e.g. through CDI)?

Thanks, regards

    Hi Vincenzo,

    yes, this is supported in 2.x runtime. You just need to specify the persistence unit e.g.


    <persistence-unit name="xxxx" transaction-type="JTA">


    Best regards

    • Hi Vincenzo,

      Happy New Year! 😊

      I finally found some time to look at this in more details and I am happy to report that it works as expected (so it's not affected by the issue from ). Actually, it's rather simple. I am attaching a sample project demonstrating it. The key points are:

      • in MyServlet we inject a Printer POJO:
      @Inject Printer printer;
      • in the Printer POJO we inject the following:
      @Inject @Informal Greeting greeting;
      @Resource UserTransaction ut;
      @PersistenceContext EntityManager em;
      • note also the empty beans.xml in WEB-INF.

      That's it. 😉 Feel free to play around with the project. (After unzipping, you have to rename testcdi.txt to and unzip again.)

      Hope it helps!
