 * <p> Any method or class marked with this annotation will be considered for transactionality.
 * Consult the documentation on https://github.com/google/guice/wiki/GuicePersist for detailed
 * semantics.
 * Marking a method {@code @Transactional} will start a new transaction before the method
 * executes and commit it after the method returns.
 * <p>
 * If the method throws an exception, the transaction will be rolled back <em>unless
 * you have specifically requested not to in the {@link #ignore()} clause.
 * <p>
 * Similarly, the set of exceptions that will trigger a rollback can be defined in
 * the {@link #rollbackOn()} clause. By default, only unchecked exceptions trigger a
 * rollback.

@Target({ ElementType.METHOD, ElementType.TYPE })
public @interface Transactional {

   * A list of exceptions to rollback on, if thrown by the transactional method.
   * These exceptions are propagated correctly after a rollback.
  Class<? extends Exception>[] rollbackOn() default RuntimeException.class;

   * A list of exceptions to <b>not rollback on. A caveat to the rollbackOn clause.
   * The disjunction of rollbackOn and ignore represents the list of exceptions
   * that will trigger a rollback.
   * The complement of rollbackOn and the universal set plus any exceptions in the
   * ignore set represents the list of exceptions that will trigger a commit.
   * Note that ignore exceptions take precedence over rollbackOn, but with subtype
   * granularity.
  Class<? extends Exception>[] ignore() default { };
