[P-312 of Ejb3 In Action Book"] states:
"For application-based EntityManager, the transaction-type must be set to RESOURCE_LOCAL in the persistence.xml file".
but in case the application is running inside container (App server) , it can join JTA transaction. Sp why always transaction-type should be
RESOURCE_LOCAL.?
