Tom Jenkinson commented on JBTM-1284:

we already support nested transactions, it should just be not associating them with a thread and making sure they are thread safe when they talk to their parents

>                 Key: JBTM-1284
>                 URL: https://issues.jboss.org/browse/JBTM-1284
>             Project: JBoss Transaction Manager
>          Issue Type: Feature Request
>      Security Level: Public(Everyone can see) 
>          Components: Transaction Core
>            Reporter: Tom Jenkinson
>            Assignee: Paul Robinson
>             Fix For: 5.0.0.M3
> Needs sanity checking
> We can collaborate on the work via linked GitHub branch
> The problem out of the box is when you AtomicAction "begin" - you will link to the ThreadActionData, as you can see in the test I can circumvent that via a different API call start passing in the parent directly.
> You can see there is precedent to manipulate ThreadActionData: ArjunaCore/arjuna/classes/com/arjuna/ats/arjuna/coordinator/AsyncPrepare.java (doing the prepare in multiple threads)
> I think this is feasible, it may need some thread safety via synchronization in the AtomicAction.
> Nested Transactions in core look to be able to support concurrent access except:
> 1. Threading may not work, will need to check and fix
> 2. ThreadActionData imposes a stack
> You can see in my test (linked in the GitHub branch) I am circumventing the stack.
