Hi all,
What is the answer for the fourth scenario

The exception for when the client starts a transaction, and the Container has to roll it back.

At first I thought it was TransactionRolledbackException/TransactionRolledBackLocalException but I'm a little confused as to when that exception would be thrown. It also could be any runtime exception, because they always cause the Container to rollback a transaction.
Can someone please clear up my confusion.
Much appreciated.

Hi Keith,
TransactionRolledbackException/TransactionRolledBackLocalException both are system exception (RemoteException for remote clients / EJBException for local ones). So it's not contradictory with what you write: if a RuntimeException is thrown, the container will rollback the transaction and, in case the client started the transaction, will then throw TransactionRolledbackException or TransactionRolledBackLocalException which are just more specialized system exceptions.
