Spring Transaction Management over multiple threads

Spring framework provides a comprehensive API for database transaction management. Spring takes care of all underlying transaction management considerations and provides a consistent programming model for different transaction APIs such as Java Transaction API (JTA), JDBC, Hibernate, Java Persistence API (JPA), and Java Data Objects (JDO). There are 2 main types of transaction management in Spring. They are declarative transaction management which is a high level one and programmatic transaction management which is more advance but flexible.

The Spring API works very well with almost all of the transaction management requirements as long as the transaction is on a single thread. The problem rises when we want to manage a transaction across multiple threads. Spring doesn't support transactions over multiple threads out of the box. Spring doesn't explicitly mention that in the documentation. But you will end up with run time errors or unexpected results if you try to do so.
