This week's book giveaway is in the OCPJP forum. We're giving away four copies of OCA/OCP Java SE 7 Programmer I & II Study Guide and have Kathy Sierra & Bert Bates on-line! See this thread for details.
It says in the EJB spec (about CMT) that for entity beans and session beans there are certain methods that must be assigned transaction attributes. However, the <assembly-descriptor> part of ejb-jar.xml is optional. And the appserver I am using does not complain or give a warning when I deploy a set of beans without the <assembly-descriptor> part.
How does the container know which transaction-attributes to use? Does it use default configuration or no transactions at all ?
Hello, The application server will use the default transaction attribute. In case of weblogic it will use supports as the default transaction attribute if the trans attribute is not specified. Also it will give a warning message that no transaction attribute is specified . Which application server you are using?. Have you check the logs that there is no warning.
It may be the reason that some application servers expect the transaction attributes to be specified but all the intelligent and good app servers will use a default transaction attribute.
Hope it helps.
