The timeout specified in jboss.xml is only used if the EJB3 container needs to create a new transaction when the method in the session bean is called. A new transaction is only created in the following two cases:

- the transaction attribute is Required and there is no transaction running
- the transaction attribute is RequiresNew

The transaction attribute is Required by default, but can be overriden in the ejb-jar.xml (<container-transaction> element) or with the @TransactionAttribute annotation.

In your application, probably a transaction is started with the default timeout when the MDB's onMessage method is invoked, and that same transaction is used by your session bean.
