Say I am using Spring in a JEE container with JPA/Hibernate.
Should Spring use the JpaTransactionManager or HibernateTransactionManager or JtaTransactionManager or if any transaction manager is required at all if EJB transaction management is used?

Well, it is up to you. You can choose whatever transaction manager you want. Are you using any Hibernate specific stuff, or is all your code JPA. If you are straight JPA, then if you choice was down to HibernateTransactionManager or JPATransactionManager, well you still have a choice of either one. But if you have some Hibernate specific stuff, and you had just those two choices, you would have to choose HibernateTransactionManager because you have some Hibernate specific stuff.

But with all three, you can always just use JTATransactionManager if you wanted and not worry whether there is Hibernate specific stuff or not. But know that if you take your stuff out of the JEE container and not have a JTATransactionManager then you are stuck. So if you ever think you will run the code outside a JEE container, then choose Hibernate or JPA Transaction Managers.

Hope that helps.
