|Standard/Technology Name:|| Web Services Atomic Transaction (WS-AtomicTransaction)|
|Contributor:||International Business Machines, Inc. (IBM)|
This specification provides the definition of the atomic transaction coordination type that is to be used with the extensible coordination framework described in the WS-Coordination specification. The specification defines three specific agreement coordination protocols for the atomic transaction coordination type: completion, volatile two-phase commit, and durable two-phase commit. Developers can use any or all of these protocols when building applications that require consistent agreement on the outcome of short-lived distributed activities that have the all-or-nothing property.
