What is the difference between BMT UserTransaction/CMT and JDBC Transaction?

So does the database be updated finally by the following?

UserTransaction.begin();
//some db update code
Connection.commit();
UserTransaction.rollback();

According to the spec 17.3.3, you are not supposed to use Connection.commit() :

The Bean Provider uses the UserTransaction interface to demarcate transactions. All updates to the resource managers between the UserTransaction.begin() and UserTransaction.commit() methods are performed in a transaction. While an instance is in a transaction, the instance must not attempt to use the resource-manager specific transaction demarcation API (e.g. it must not invoke the commit() or rollback() method on the java.sql.Connection interface or on the javax.jms.Session interface).

So will there be an exception or just the target database is updated even the user transaction is rollback?

Moreover, if there is any definition in the deployment descriptor, what is the default transaction attribute for the CMT beans?
