I am trying to update data. I use the JpaDaoSupport (Spring) based POJO as the DAO layer. HSQL is the back-end. Declarative Transaction Management is used. I have a search & update functionalities. Out of these, search is working fine. whereas update method is throwing javax.persistence.TransactionRequiredException: Executing an update/delete query

Source Code:
public class SimpleEmployeeViewBuilder extends JpaDaoSupport implements EmployeeViewBuilder {

// Search Methods & Other declarations

@Transactional(propagation = Propagation.REQUIRED)
public void updateEmployeeView(final SimpleEmployeeView view) {

EntityManager anEntityManager = getJpaTemplate().getEntityManagerFactory().createEntityManager();

final Query query = anEntityManager.createQuery(
"UPDATE employee.pd.Employee emp SET emp.employeeName=? WHERE emp.employeeId =?");

query.setParameter(1, view.getEmployeeName());
query.setParameter(2, view.getEmployeeId());

query.executeUpdate(); //****This is the line throwing exception

Configuration File :

<!--=========== Datasources ===========-->
<bean id="dataSource"class="org.springframework.jdbc.datasource.DriverManagerDataSource">
<property name="driverClassName" value="org.hsqldb.jdbcDriver" />
<property name="url"
value="jdbc:hsqldb:file:test/hsqldb/data;shutdown=true" />
<property name="username" value="***" />
<property name="password" value="***" />

<!--=========== EntityManagerFactory ===========-->
<bean id="entityManagerFactory"class="org.springframework.orm.jpa.LocalContainerEntityManagerFactoryBean">
<property name="dataSource" ref="dataSource" />
<property name="jpaVendorAdapter">

<property name="generateDdl" value="false" />

<bean id="employeeViewBuilder"class="employee.viewobject.SimpleEmployeeViewBuilder">

<tx:annotation-driven transaction-manager="txManager" proxy-target-class="true"/>
<bean id="txManager"
<property name="entityManagerFactory"
ref="entityManagerFactory" />
<property name="dataSource" ref="dataSource" />


And, this is the exception stack trace:

I am struggling with this problem for couple of days but no progress....
