If you are calling a method from within the bean (without using the proxy or what's called the EJBObject in EJB2.x terms) then it will be just another java method invocation. No new transactions will be started even if the transaction attribute on the method being called is REQUIRES_NEW. You might find this explained in a J2EE book.

I see what you are saying. I always thought that when a new transaction is started, a *new instance* of the container managed entitymanager will be injected. I will have to read the specs to understand what's the expected behaviour.
