      I really got a lot of problems with the transaction management (with both the declarative and the programmatic way).
      I use jboss(2.4)/jetty and the jboss-db hypersonic.
      Since the programmatic way didn't work, I decided to first make it declarative... but this also does not work.
      I've written a simple servlet, which invokes the method transact() of a (also simple) Bean.
      The Bean just updates a single entry in the database and then causes an exception. I expect the database-update not to happen, but when I test the entries, the db-update is done, even when the exception was thrown.
      The code of the servlet is trivial. It just invokes transact().
      The code of the bean is:

      // connect to the database (which actualy works!)
      // initialize statement-object
      stmt.executeUpdate("UPDATE table1 SET word = 'two' WHERE word='one'");
      // now the code that causes a System-Exception
      throw new EjbException();

      On the jboss-console, I get the following message:

      [INFO,Default] ejbRemove()
      javax.transaction.TransactionRolledBackException: null
      Embedded Exception
      10; nested exception is:
      javax.ejb.EJBException: null
      Embedded Exception
      at org.jboss.ejb.plugins.TxInterceptorCMT.invokeNext(TxInterceptorCMT.java:166)
      at org.jboss.ejb.plugins.TxInterceptorCMT.runWithTransactions(TxInterceptorCMT.java:347)
      at org.jboss.ejb.plugins.TxInterceptorCMT.invoke(TxInterceptorCMT.java:100)

      I've looked at the documentation and found:
      RollbackException exception is thrown when the transaction has been marked for rollback only or the transaction has been rolled back instead of committed. This is a local exception thrown by methods in the UserTransaction, Transaction, and TransactionManager interfaces.
      So... everything should be correct... but if I get the entry, it is 'two' and not 'one' anymore. I tried a lot of things and didn't forget to change the db-entry back to 'one', everytime I test it.
      I've also tested the entries in the ejb-jar.xml. I changed it to "Mandatory" and got the error message, that I have to invoke transact() from within a transaction... so I think it should work with "Required"!

          How do you get the database connection?

          If you lookup the datasource "java:/DefaultDS"
          and ask it for a connection, the connection will
          automatically be added to the transaction.

          For other methods, you have to add the connection
          to the transaction yourself.

            String url = "jdbc:hsqldb:hsql://localhost:1476";
            conn = DriverManager.getConnection(url, "guest", null);
            stmt = conn.createStatement();

            should do it correctly, or am I wrong?

            After testing a few things and making a few changes, I know got the error message a bit clearer, I think.
            The "core"-error-message is:

            java.io.FileNotFoundException: C:\local_jboss\jboss\db\sessions\Transactor\10516020543915.ser

            "Transactor" is the name of my Bean (meanwhile, a Stateful Session Bean).
            What are .ser-Files?

              Using the DriverManager does not enroll the
              connection in the transaction.

              Use the datasource bound at "java:/DefaultDS"

              The .ser files are passivated session beans.
              Your session bean is probably not serializable?

                Thanks a lot!
                That was it! I now configured the connection in the .jcml and the rollback() is done correct.
                Thank you so much!
