HFE, p 487 says "Everything in UserTransaction is for BTM beans ONLY!" (begin, commit, getStatus, rollback, setRollbackOnly, setTransactionTimeout). HFE, p. 508 says "BMT is used by session beans and message-driven beans".

Does this mean that message-driven beans with BMT are allowed to call javax.ejb.EJBContext.getUserTransaction()?
