Stateless Session Beans could be used for transactions involving more than one table. This is where your Java Transaction API and TX DataSource come into picture.
You could get the Transaction object from the EJBContext's getUserTransaction() method
and then, get your SQL statements in place within a try and catch block.
Remember, you need to use the transaction.begin(), transaction.commit() and transaction.rollback() methods to ensure your transaction works fine !!!
Hope this helps.

Thanks for joining JavaRanch, but could you just take a quick look at the naming policy and edit your profile accordingly.
