EJB 3 and DAO : Too much too migrate

Posted on 2007-10-05

In my EJB3, I am still using my DAO instead of Persistence Manager
The DAO is just a POJO, lying under Session Bean

The problem is : The JDBC Connection does not seem to participate in a Transaction, even though The Method is already specified using @TransactionAttribute(REQUIRED)
So, it causes deadlock on parent child update

I tried to debug the Session Bean, but even the UserTransaction object can't be obtained via
or Even from
UserTransaction ut = context.getUserTransaction()

ut will have TransactionHandlerImpl, with no actual UserTransaction object

I need to make DAO work with EJB 3 Transaction first. Upgrading DAO to EntityManager is scheduled next 12 months. Anyone know how can the Connection in JDBC participate in the Container Managed Transaction ?

The implementation lies with the container. So, you should look at the
container's code. Which container are you using here? and remember any
changes you will do will make your code container specific - will be
difficult to migrate to different container.

as far as i think you cant customize the vendor code.

For the Container, I am using Sun Java Application Server 9 (NetBeans 5.5) and OC4J 11 preview

The same EAR deployed in OC4J 11 did not encounter deadlock because it participate in Transaction

As for OC4J, I can't get it stop at the breakpoint I specify in NetBeans 5.5, even though it ran using -Xdebug, so I use it as secondary development container.

This is what I initially fear of using Annotation. We did not know how the container will specifically behave when it was working fine in EJB 2.1. I did not know for 3 days that the Transaction actually did not take place.

I also did not know if The Transaction Context is propagated only in the Session Bean ( in my problem ), or down to Session Bean Helper objects

I really doubt annotation is the cause. If you feel that is, then remove all
the annotation and you can still use plain old xml descriptors. There is a
lot of change in EJB 2 to EJB 3.
