Spring / Spring Data Access
Difference between Spring JtaTransactionManager and HibernateTransactionManager.
HibernateTransactionManager manages transactions on top of a single Hibernate SessionFactory. If your application uses only a JDBC-compliant database to store data (that is, no ERP, JMS queue, file system, etc. is involved) that you access using Hibernate, you can use a HibernateTransactionManager in your application.
If however, you have business operations that can modify multiple data stores at the same time and you need to ensure data consistency across all the stores, you will need to use JTA transactions. JTA support is provided either by JavaEE containers like JBoss, WebLogic or WebSphere or third-party JTA providers like Atomikos or Bitronix.
