      The JMS 2.0 specification, section 12.3 "Behaviour of JMS sessions in the Java EE web or EJB container" states that if a Session or JMSContext is created when there is no active JTA transaction in progress, then the Session or JMSContext that is created will be non-transacted and any messages received will be automatically acknowledged.

      The specification states that the use of local transactions or client acknowledgement is not permitted. A session parameter may be used to specify whether the acknowledgement mode should be AUTO_ACKNOWLEDGE or DUPS_OK_ACKNOWLEDGE, but any other values will be ignored.

      Issue: When there is no application server transaction (or if the Session or JMSContext has opted out of the JTA transaction if allowed by JMS_SPEC-130), should client-acknowledgement or local transactions be permitted?

      If so, we would need to define an appropriate API by which the application specifies this. We can't use the existing parameters to createSession and createContext for this purpose since these must be ignored in accordance with the EJB 3.1 specification).
