Amazon RDS for SQL Server now supports MSDTC JDBC XA transactions. With MSDTC you can either execute the transaction using SQL Server as the Transaction manager using linked servers, or you can promote MSDTC running on the same host as the Client application to the role of Transaction manager.

With this announcement, customers that are using SQL Server 2017 CU16+ and SQL Server 2019 can now enable XA option setting to start distributed transactions from JDBC.
