Hi All,
On HFE Page 483, it says "If a transcation is in progress when a method on a BMT bean is called, the transcation is suspended."
I think the words "when a method on a BMT" is really a big doubt, even a method on a CMT bean is called, the transcation is still could be suspended, the suspending transaction depeneds on the method's transcation attribute.
Anyone could clear my doubt? Thanks a lot in advance.

Hai,

You are correct in saying that the transaction can be also suspended when a method on CMT bean is called (eg, method trans-attribute is NotSupported).

The actual question asks explicitly about BMT beans:


If a transcation is in progress when a method on a BMT bean is called, the transcation is suspended."



and therefore the answer is always 'Yes' - no transaction can propogate into the BMT bean.

Hope it helps

Alex,
Thanks a lot. Your answer relly clear my doubt.
Maybe we can do a summary for transaction suspend here, only three situations one transaction will be suspended:

suppose one transaction is in progress:
1) a method on a BMT bean is called.
2) a method on a CMT bean is called, and this method's transaction attribute is 'NotSupported'
3) a method on a CMT bean is called, and this method's transaction attribute is 'RequireNew'

I only can think of this three situations, do you have more situations for transaction which could be suspened?

Thanks.

Those are the only ones Hai. Look at pages 494 and 495 of HFEJB.
Cheers
