Hi,
I was reading Head First EJB and I really don�t understand why is it possible "force a transaction to rollback" or "find out if the transaction has already been set to rollback" in ejbCreate method for EntityBean?
I thought that I don't even to be able to get EJBObject, the "bodyguard". How is it possible for the container to provide transaction services, if ejbCreate is not in a tx context?
Thanks!

The container calls ejbCreate() in the transaction context of the client's create(). If the client calls with a transaction context, then it's perfectly legal to invoke the EJBContext's getRollbackOnly() and setRollbackOnly() methods.

Client calls create() method to create a new row in the D.B. So obviously it is tied to the EJBObject.We can call other methods using that EJBObject.
 
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
