Shape the future of IBM!

We invite you to shape the future of IBM, including product roadmaps, by submitting ideas that matter to you the most. Here's how it works:

Post your ideas

Start by posting ideas and requests to enhance a product or service. Take a look at ideas others have posted and upvote them if they matter to you,

  1. Post an idea

  2. Upvote ideas that matter most to you

  3. Get feedback from the IBM team to refine your idea

Help IBM prioritize your ideas and requests

The IBM team may need your help to refine the ideas so they may ask for more information or feedback. The offering manager team will then decide if they can begin working on your idea. If they can start during the next development cycle, they will put the idea on the priority list. Each team at IBM works on a different schedule, where some ideas can be implemented right away, others may be placed on a different schedule.

Receive a notification on the decision

Some ideas can be implemented at IBM, while others may not fit within the development plans for the product. In either case, the team will let you know as soon as possible. In some cases, we may be able to find alternatives for ideas which cannot be implemented in a reasonable time.

If you encounter any issues accessing the Ideas portals, please send email describing the issue to ideasibm@us.ibm.com for resolution.

Expose com.ibm.ws.uow.embeddable.UOWManager for Application access

An application may need to access transaction manager in order to suspend and resume the current thread's transaction programmatically. This feature could be achieved through UowManager in Websphere Traditional. But, Liberty provides a UoWManager which has a method to run a work within runUnderUOW method instead of providing free hand to the application.

As I understand that com.ibm.ws.uow.embeddable.UOWManager class in com.ibm.ws.tx.embeddable_1.0.47.jar which looks have similar implementation as Websphere Traditional, but it is not exposed to the application to access.

Idea priority High
Why is it useful?

It would be very useful when an application is migrated from Websphere Traditional to Liberty and reduces the amount of effort on code refactor and regression testing.

Who would benefit from this idea? Application which are getting migrated from Websphere Traditional into Liberty
