P.S. I understand that this is not necessarily a good framework, but the projects at work do it this way and I can only cange their minds one thing at a time. Right now I am working on JBoss, so if i can get our project up and running on it then I can move on to the framework and various other interesting things that are coded in it.
DISREGARD THIS TOPIC as the problem has nothing to do with transactions and the supject title no longer makes any sense. I will re ask the question in a much more intelligent and meaningful manner.
The answer to this question is that im a stupid moron.
I was trying to change the ID on the jsp but the update in my bean does not set the id field. So I am just completely and totally stupid.
you could even delete this thread.
