I molded this into a mini blog. Pete, if you are interested, feel free to
post this as it will likely solve a wider misunderstanding from going
"A standard, universal @Transactional annotation is coming in Java EE 7.
However, there are some important things to keep in mind:
- @Transactional *is* being developed as a revision to the JTA spec (as an
- @Transactional *is not* being developed by the CDI EG, nor will it be in
the CDI spec
- Feedback on @Transactional should be sent to the Java EE platform EG
*not* to the CDI EG. The platform EG is conducting the revision to the JTA
Java EE does not recognize a Servlet container as a compliant environment
and therefore this feature will not be available there by default (mainly
due to the absence of JTA in this environemnt).
However, to bridge the divide, Weld and OpenWebBeans will both likely offer
support for @Transactional in a Servlet environment since we acknowledge
that it *is* important, and is an environment preferred by many developers
(but we still strongly urge you to migrate to the web profile!!)."
