When using an entity lifecycle listener with the lifecycle method @PrePersist and/or @PreUpdate I get a RollbackExpection in which I can get the original Exception by calling the method getCause on the RollbackException. I understand this. The thrown exception is catched by the persistence provider and then thrown as a RollbackException, because the transaction is rolled back by the persistence provider.

Only when I use a entity life cycle listener with the annotation @PreRemove I get the original exception and have to rollback the transaction by hand.

Why is this different?
