    ****************************************************************
    If a bean is annotated with an @Stereotype which contains an
    @Transactional annotation, the @Transactional interceptor code
    will fail to locate the binding.  This will cause an exception
    to be raised with an error message stating "Can't find
    @Transactional annotation in AroundInvoke".
    

Problem conclusion

  • The @Transactional interceptor code did not check through the
    tree of stereotypes attached to a bean to see if any of those
    stereotypes contained an interceptor binding. The code has been
    altered to traverse stereotypes and look for @Transactional
    annotations.
    
    The fix for this APAR is currently targeted for inclusion in fix
    pack 8.5.5.9.  Please refer to the Recommended Updates page for
    delivery information:
    http://www.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?rs=180&uid=swg27004980
    

Temporary fix

  • Currently, the only available workaround is to avoid using
    stereotypes to attach @Transactional interceptor bindings to a
    class, and to instead attach the @Transactional annotation
    directly.
