Please validate my below understanding in nested transaction.
In nested-transaction model, the sub-transaction can be either flat or nested and if we go for nested sub-transaction, we can rollback that nested sub-transaction alone
if it ends up in failure without affecting the main transaction.
At this time, we can re-try that sub-transaction alone by redoing the same work & it can be made to success but in the end if it doesn't succeed, it will force the main transaction to fail.
This above point i read from Mastering EJB 3.0 book, - and I want to know,
1.Does this mean that we can re-try it only once ?
2.Do the programmers needs to have the logic to re-try & see if it succeeds or not?
3.Again If the sub-transaction fails, how it will affect the main transaction - will it be done by the ejb transaction manager ?
Please correct me if i am wrong in my understanding Or in the questions i have asked. Thanks in advance.

EJB does not support nested transaction(particular transaction within another transaction).
