BMT Transaction:
It's well known that a BMT bean(Stateless Session Bean or Message Driven Bean) must NOT complete a transactional method without ending the transaction.

I just want to know, what happens when a programmer miss on this. What type of exception is thrown by Container?

The Container will throw a javax.transaction.NotSupportedException from the begin() method if the previous transaction has not completed.

cheers,

According to the spec (17.6.1), for a SLSB a RemoteException or EJBException is thrown to the client.

For a MDB it doesn't make sense for the container to throw an exception (since there is no client to receive it).

Kathy, thanks once again.

Let me summarise what I have understood below:

If Bean Provider do not complete a transactional method without ending the transaction of a BMT bean(Stateless Session Bean or Message Driven Bean):
1] Container do not throw any exception
2] Subsequently, if an attempt is made to begin new Transaction without first completing previous transaction, javax.transaction.NotSupportedException is thrown.
 
Being a smart alec beats the alternative. This tiny ad knows what I'm talking about:
