Assuming aMethod, bMethod, cMethod are methods of interface A, their transaction attributes are
REQUIRED, SUPPORTS, and REQUIRES_NEW respectively.

why,aMethod's transaction attribute is REQUIRED ?

If the bean class has superclasses, the following additional rules apply.
• A transaction attribute specified on a superclass S applies to the business methods defined by S.
If a class-level transaction attribute is not specified on S, it is equivalent to specification of
TransactionAttribute(REQUIRED) on S.
• A transaction attribute may be specified on a business method M defined by class S to override
for method M the transaction attribute value explicitly or implicitly specified on the class S.
• If a method M of class S overrides a business method defined by a superclass of S, the transaction
attribute of M is determined by the above rules as applied to class S.

I can't understand this rule....

This is because aMethod is overridden by ABean and the default TransactionAttribute is "Required" for beans with CMT.

Further, what this rule says is transaction attributes are not inherited by the subclasses.

Hope this helps in your understanding.

I think this is not about Inheritance of the transaction attribute though it correctly apply in such scenario.

In other words if aMethod() in ABean gets the Transaction attribute as "Required" by default which overrides the one that is specified in SomClass which is super class.

Hope this helps.
