Hi All,
I have one query re:how transaction is managed in the following scenario
I have a session bean method which has a transaction attribute of 'Required' and from this method I am calling a method of an Entity bean which has no transaction attribute.....will in this case the method of the entity bean operate under transaction?

My guess would be that the entity bean executes within an unspecified transaction context. On the other hand, WebLogic, for example, defaults to "Supports" if bean provider hasn't specified a transaction attribute for the entity bean.

Lasse is right. Please check your vendors doc for the default transaction attribute.

I agree. Here's the link:
