A client can never call an MDB directly. MDBs do not have home/remote/local interfaces for the client to lookup/create/use the MDB. The Container manages everything about an MDB, instantiation, removal, calling the onMessage(Message m) method .... in fact, 'Required' and 'NotSupported' are the only transaction attributes that an MDB can use w/ it's onMessage() method, because the others do not make sense.
HFEJB page#500 'You can say only two things for onMessage(): YES, I want to start a transaction (Required) or NO, I don't want to start a transaction (NotSupported)
hope this helps
