4 Protocol Examples
The following sections describe several operations as used in common scenarios to illustrate the function of the MSDTC Connection Manager: OleTx Transaction Protocol. These protocol examples generally assume that an OleTx transports session, as specified in [MS-CMPO] section 22.214.171.124, has already been established between the two participants. However, some examples exhibit how one participant establishes a new OleTx transports session with another participant because of the protocol that is being demonstrated.
Participants communicate with each other by using OleTx multiplexing connections, as specified in [MS-CMP] section 126.96.36.199, that are in turn layered on top of the OleTx transports infrastructure (as specified in [MS-CMPO] section 3.3.1). In these examples, messages are sent from one participant to another by submitting a MESSAGE_PACKET (section 188.8.131.52) to the underlying OleTx multiplexing layer, as specified in [MS-CMP] section 184.108.40.206.
