[hibernate-dev] new proposal for tx timeout handling using transaction DISASSOCIATING event notification...

With a proposed TM level listener, we will have an SPI for notification
of when application threads associated with a JTA transaction, become
disassociated with the transaction (tm.commit/rollback/suspend time).
Having this knowledge in a synchronization callback, can determine
whether the persistence context should be cleared directly from the
Synchronization.afterCompletion(int) call or should be deferred until
the transaction is disassociated from the JTA transaction.
This idea is based on a TM level listener approach that Tom Jenkinson
 suggested. Mike Musgrove has a "proof of concept" implementation of
the suggested changes . I did some testing with  to see if the
improvement helps with clearing entities that might still be in the
persistence context after a background tx timeout.
I'm wondering if in the Hibernate ORM
Synchronization.afterCompletion(int status) implementation, in case of
tx rollback, if we could defer the clearing of the Hibernate session to
be handled by the JtaPlatform. This could be setup at
EntityManager.joinTransaction() time (if a new property like
"hibernate.transaction.defer_clear_session" is true). Perhaps via a
JtaPlatform.joinTransaction(EntityManager) registration call?
