What does "unspecified transaction context" mean?

I can see this word being used in many places of the SPEC. like for example in page 68 of core spec it says "The PreDestroy lifecycle callback interceptor methods execute in an unspecified transaction and security context."

Thanks !

It means that there is no transaction associated with that method's execution.

Take a look at the chapter that explains transactions in the ejb core spec.
