I am sure you don't understand the reason for the existence of local-tx-datasource , do you understand the reason behind it ?

local-tx-datasource are there to make the single one phase participant(db resource) to  enable in the JTA transaction , this is done by LRCO(last resource commit optimization) . Read this one 

In case you are not using the global transaction (JTA) in your application code you can use no-tx-datasource.

And finally the TransactionManger is smart enough to just call only the commit when it finds that there is only one participant in the JTA transaction , it can omit the prepare phase ;)
