The Arjuna transaction system began life in the mid 1980s as an academic project to examine the use of object-oriented techniques in the development of fault-tolerant distributed systems. Twenty five years later, it is an integral part of the JBoss application sever middleware from Red Hat. This journey from an academic to a commercial environment has been neither easy nor smooth but it has been interesting from many different perspectives. This paper gives an overview of this journey and discusses key lessons learned.
