Hi Ranchers, I'm going through the HFEJB book and I got stuck with Brian Power question. Can anybody help on answering the below question for BMT? " Think about the diff between CMT and BMT If tied up and forced to pick one over the other which would you pick? CMT or BMT Why ?What are the pros and cons? For CMT, Pros for Using CMT, 1. It's simpler, supports bean reuse, and is the only way you can do transactions for entity beans. 2. By putting transaction info in the DD, you can deploy same bean multiple times and get different transaction behavior.

Pros for using BMT You can have a shorter transactional code i.e. the whole method does not have to be in a transaction. For SFSB, you can open your transaction in one method and end it in another method - do not know if this an advantage or a disadvantage. Conclusion; There is no one generaally accepted answer to this, but I will go with CMT because the pros to me outweigh that of BMT.
You will always be treated with dignity. Now, strip naked, get on the probulator and hold this tiny ad:
