Project setup: Spring 3.0.5 / JPA 2 / Hibernate / @Transactional
We work with several different Data Sources (and hence different transaction managers), but have common Service base classes, as a lot of the functionality is reused.
So we thought we'd solve this by using Custom Annotations. We define all methods in an abstract base class, and create one empty implementation class per TransactionManager.
Now the problem is:
In AbstractFallbackTransactionAttributeSource, this is the lookup that is being done:
First the method is checked, then the class that declares the method (and its ancestors). But in our context, the custom annotation resides in a subclass that can't be found by going upwards.
TransactionAttribute txAtt = findTransactionAttribute(specificMethod);
// Second try is the transaction attribute on the target class.
txAtt = findTransactionAttribute(specificMethod.getDeclaringClass());
So how can we solve this problem?
