HF book on page 228 it's mentioned that

Stateless bean CAN NOT get a transaction reference and call methods on it (BMT) in ejbCreate & ejbRemove methods.

On page 196 it's mentioned that

Stateful bean CAN get a transaction reference and call methods on it (BMT) in ejbCreate & ejbRemove methods.

Is this right and if yes, then why is that difference in the behavior of Stateless vs Stateful? Also, it's mentioned that both stateful & stateless beans can't invoke setRollbackOnly & getRollbackOnly on CMT beans in ejbCreate/ejbRemove methods. Why that differentitation between BMT and CMT beans?

Please reply.

Thanks
Deep

Hi Deep

A stateless/stateful session bean with CMT ejbCreate, ejbRemove methods are called with an unspecified transaction context.

A stateless/stateful session bean with BMT ejbCreate, ejbRemove methods are called with a transaction context.

Please refer to Valentin Crettaz's cheat sheets:
