Abstract

This invention relates to a method for the execution of a two phase commit operation in a demand/response protocol among communication nodes. In a network environment of node failures and lost messages, the method includes a linear approach for the preparation phase and a centralized approach for the commit phase in which the last site acts as a commit coordinator.
