Hibernate and transaction management

Really excited about Hibernate now. My current EJB system has transactions and it uses Container to manage the transactions by setting transaction attributes. If I go with Hibernate, it seems I don't need an application server any more (correct me if I am wrong), then how do I manage the transactions ?

Should I keep using application server and just convet the entity bean to Hibernate and keep session benas untouched, and then still use container to manage transactions ? This doesn't sound correct to me... How do you guys do ?

I use Spring - it has a beautiful declarative transaction management support.

What if I use JTA to handle the transaction ? Do you think Spring can do what JTA does ?
I agree. Here's the link:
