HFEJB PgNo 499, lists the methods(and circumstances) that might be running in an "Unspecified Transaction Context". It includes
1. Any CMT marked NotSupported, Never or Supports 2. Session bean methods ejbCreate(), ejbRemove(), ejbPassivate(), ejbActivate() 3. CMT message-driven bean methods ejbCreate() and ejbRemove().
My question is are these only methods or circumstances running in an "Unspecified Transaction Context". I think even Entity bean's ejbActivate(), ejbPassivate() methods run in an unspecified transaction context. And are there any more methods or circumstances in this respect.
Just have a look at bean things. Any method where you cannot mark a transaction for rollback / check whether the transaction is marked for rollback means it is running in an Unspecified Transaction Context
