    how to rollback a DB manipulation SQL in a method

    Lu Li Newbie

      Hi all,

      I have this question regarding rolling back and I thought it is handled by Transaction Manager of the EJB 3.0 but it doesnot seem so.
      The problem is I have method in a Stateless session bean that trying to remove some rows in 1 table first and and then insert some rows in the other table. I want to make sure if the insertion failed in the second step, all of those removals would be rolled back. I use the EntityManager to do the delete and insert. Here are the pseudocode of my method

      void updateDB (){
      void removeRows(){
       //use EntityManager to remove
      void addRows(){
       //use EntityManager to insert some rows

      Could anyone tell me how to make sure if the call to addRows failed, such as insert a duplicate row, would cause the removeRows rolledback?

      Thank you very much in advance,
