Transaction names can't be > 64 chars on MySQL

Reported by Carl | June 16th, 2008 @ 10:40 AM

When executing XA START 'domU-12-31-38-00-A0-A5.compute-1.internal:26478:1213630348.41891:8';, I got this error:

~ You have an error in your SQL syntax; check the manual that corresponds to your MySQL server version for the right syntax to use near '' at line 1 - (MysqlError)

However, if I reduce the length of the txn name to 64 chars or less, it works. Since there transaction names are generated automatically, the code should take care of this.

    I'm sending the patch we developed here. We made it for MySQL only but it could probably be useful for all DBs as well.

    Basically, we just hash the ID using SHA2. It gives 64 bytes as required. Personally, I couldn't care less about having a "readable" transaction ID.

    Thanks for the fix, Carl. I went ahead and applied it (in c255f42) to data_objects/transaction.rb when @id is set, so that all the adapters get this.
