Hi All, I have a doubt, say I start a trsxn (tc1) in a BMT its not committed, i call a method of another bean with CMT with a trsxn (tb2), if I call setRollBackOnly() over in this method, while this method returns to my bmt method which is in trsxn tc1 and try to do a getStatus() will my trsxn be rolled back. Ogi.. let me summarize, Can I rollback a BMT trsxn from CMT trsxn?
I you start a transaction in a BMT bean, you can call a CMT bean which will participate in the same transaction. If the CMT bean calls setRollbackOnly() the transaction will be rolled back.
1. Bean1 start a transaction (tx.begin) 2. Bean1 calls method on bean2 which has tx attrib required (so its CMT) 3. The method on bean2 calls setRollbackOnly 4. The method in bean1 will get a TransactionRolledBack(Local)Exception
Note that there is NO tx2. If the trans attrib on bean2 was requiresNew, a tx2 would have been started by bean2 which would not affect the tx started by bean 1. Also, Bean one cannot start a second transaction when the first one is not commited.
So, a BMT started transaction can propagate to a CMT bean. A transaction started in a CMT bean can only progagate to a CMT bean and NOT a BMT bean.
