ATG - how to use the Transaction Manager

Basic concepts of Java transaction In its simplest definition, a transaction is a set of actions that is treated as an atomic unit; either all actions take place (the transaction commits), or none of them take place (the transaction rolls back). Managing transactions is one of the primary tasks of an application server. The application server keeps track of transactions, remembering which transaction is associated with which request, and what transactional resources (such as JDBC or JMS connection) are involved. Each active transaction is represented by a transaction object, which implements the interface javax.transaction.Transaction. A transaction is usually associated with a thread and only one transaction can be associated with a thread at any one time. A central service, called the Transaction Manager, is responsible for keeping track of all these transactions. The Transaction Manager is implemented through the Java Transaction API (JTA).
