Integration with Spring managed transactions.
This project provides an Ebean
to integrate with Springs JDBC Transaction manager.
ServerConfig serverConfig = new ServerConfig(); // set SpringJdbcTransactionManager ... as the external transaction manager serverConfig.setExternalTransactionManager(new SpringJdbcTransactionManager()); ... EbeanServer server = EbeanServerFactory.create(serverConfig);
You can use Ebean in Spring/Spring Boot without this and that case Ebean manages the Transactions itself. With Ebean managing the transactions there are some benefits with more control over JDBC batch, getGeneratedKeys and a simpler abstraction (as Spring transactions is designed to manage multiple resources such as JDBC Transactions and JPA EntityManager and Ebean only needs to manage JDBC Transactions).
