Last updated on AUGUST 12, 2021

Information in this document applies to any platform.


When programing javax.ejb.Timeout callback in EJB bean class (EJB Timer Service), i.e. setting @TransactionAttribute (value = javax.ejb.TransactionAttributeType.NOT_SUPPORTED) annotation on a particular timeout method, as below, the method runs longer than the JTA timeout.

public void timeout(Timer timer) {

After which the container throws an exception and the transaction is rolled back with the below error:

javax.ejb.EJBException: Transaction Rolledback.: weblogic.transaction.internal.TimedOutException: Transaction timed out after 33 seconds.


For details of using the Timer Service, please refer to "Using the Timer Service" in "The Java EE Tutorial".
