Hi Srividhya,

My guesses were almost similar except option 4 in Q1. This option is not valid as the TransactionRolledbackLocalException is part of javax.ejb and not javax.transaction.

I think I came across these questions on the ejbcertificate and here are the answers with explanation.

Answer to Q1
=================
Answer 5 is correct. javax.transaction.TransactionRolledbackException indicates to a remote client that the transaction has definitely been marked for rollback. Therefore it is pointless for the client to continue with the transaction, as the transaction cannot be committed.

Answers 1 and 2 are incorrect. It is potentially dangerous retrying to continue with a transaction after receiving an application exception because it is not always possible to determine the state of the enterprise bean. For example, if the container started a transaction just before invoking an enterprise bean with container-managed transaction and the enterprise bean throws an application exception and does not mark the transaction for rollback, the container commits the transaction before re-throwing the application exception to the client. In this scenario, it is not possible for the client to continue with the transaction on receiving the application exception.
I am not sure, I am not convinced with this argument

Answer 3 is incorrect. The container will discard the bean instance if a non-application exception is thrown. Answer 4 is incorrect. javax.transaction.TransactionRolledbackException indicates to a local client that the transaction has definitely been marked for rollback. This exception is a subclass of javax.ejb.EJBException.


Answer to Q2
=============
The cmr-field element describes the bean provider's view of a relationship. It consists of an optional description, and the name and the class type of a field in the source of a role of a relationship.
I am not sure about this either. Does spec say something like this?

The ejb-relation element describes a relationship between two entity beans with container-managed persistence.
