Hi,
According to tHe EJB spec:

"Accessing resource managers and enterprise beans is disallowed in the session bean methods for which the Container does not have a meaningful transaction context or client security context."

How come Resource Manager access and Enterprise bean access are allowed in the ejbCreate, ejbRemove, ejbActivate and ejbPassivate methods on a STATEFUL session bean. THe spec also says:

"The getRollbackOnly and setRollbackOnly methods of the SessionContext interface should be used only in the session bean methods that execute in the context of a transaction. SInce the ejbCreate, ejbRemove, ejbActivate and ejbPassivate methods of a STATEFUL session bean execute in an unspecified transaction context the getRollbackOnly and setRollbackOnly methods should not be called from these methods."

If the ejbCreate, ejbRemove, ejbActivate and ejbPassivate methods of a STATEFUL session bean execute in an unspecified transaction context, how can they be allowed to access the Resource Manager and other Enterprise beans?

Please clarify.


Thanks very much,
 
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
