    @TransactionAttribute being ignored by Transaction Manager

    Brett Birschbach Newbie

      I believe I must have something configured incorrectly, or I misunderstand transaction management performed by the container. Though I have my datasource declared as local-tx, which I believe allows transactions, it appears that my a call to a remote function in a stateless session bean is completely executed in one single transaction, regardless of the @TransactionAttribute tags.

      In my example, I call a function with @TransactionAttribute = REQUIRED. This is the OUTER FUNCTION. This function inserts a record into the cust table of our database. Then this function calls a second function with @TransactionAttribute = REQUIRES_NEW. This is the INNER FUNCTION.

      This function should, according to spec, start up a new transaction independant of the first function. However, the INNER function can select the (un-committed) cust record from the OUTER function. The INNER function then proceeds to add a cust record of its own to the database.

      Control then returns to the OUTER function, which can succesfully read the cust record inserted by the INNER function, which is to be expected because the INNER function should have had its transaction committed. However, my program then throws a RuntimeException in order to force a rollback, and this rollback removes both the cust record inserted by the OUTER function and the cust record inserted by the INNER function.

      To further my belief that the transaction manager is ignoring my @TransactionAttribute annotations, I change the TransactionAttributeType of the INNER function to "NEVER". According to spec, the code should throw an exception when this function is called within a managed transaction. However, when I run the code I get the exact same behavior as when the INNER function is "REQUIRES_NEW".

      I would greatly appreciate if anyone has any insight into what I am doing wrong. Thanks!
