File systems can be transactional, via JCA
I believe a number of vendors have produced JCA adapters for file systems (or you could write your own!). If you can find one that supports XA (global) transactions, you could access the file system in the same transaction as your database along with any other transactional resources used by your application (JMS queues, etc.). Could I use "transaction" any more times in a sentence?
