On p.166 of Ivan's notes,

Examples of methods that execute in an unspecified transaction context include:
...
3) Methods in EJBs with CMT that have the transaction attribute NEVER or NOT_SUPPORT



I think "NEVER" or "NOT_SUPPORT" means the EJB won't run in any transaction at all.
However, with "unspecified transaction context", it is up the the container to decide whether
the EJB should be run in a transaction or no in a transaction.

Exactly, methods having transaction attributes as NEVER and NOT_SUPPORTED are specified to run without a transaction. The container cannot decide to run these inside a transaction.
