transaction controll in spring

So, here will some notes about transaction controll in spring

Simple configuration for transaction support(via annotations):
<mvc:annotation-driven />
    <context:component-scan base-package="net.sinistersky.j2ee.spring_data_jpa" />
    	<jdbc:embedded-database id="dataSource" type="HSQL" />
	<bean id="entityManagerFactory" class="org.springframework.orm.jpa.LocalContainerEntityManagerFactoryBean">
		<property name="dataSource" ref="dataSource" />
		<property name="jpaVendorAdapter">
			<bean class="org.springframework.orm.jpa.vendor.HibernateJpaVendorAdapter">
				<property name="generateDdl" value="true" />
				<property name="database" value="HSQL" />
		<property name="persistenceUnitName" value="jpa.sample" />
	<bean id="transactionManager" class="org.springframework.orm.jpa.JpaTransactionManager">
		<property name="entityManagerFactory" ref="entityManagerFactory" />
    <tx:annotation-driven proxy-target-class="true"  transaction-manager="transactionManager"/>

Example repository:
package net.sinistersky.j2ee.spring_data_jpa.repo;

import java.util.List;

import javax.persistence.EntityManager;
import javax.persistence.EntityTransaction;
import javax.persistence.PersistenceContext;
import javax.persistence.PersistenceException;
import javax.persistence.TypedQuery;

import net.sinistersky.j2ee.spring_data_jpa.model.User;

import org.springframework.stereotype.Repository;
import org.springframework.transaction.annotation.Propagation;
import org.springframework.transaction.annotation.Transactional;

public class UserRepository{
    private EntityManager em;
    @Transactional(rollbackFor=CostunNonRTE.class, propagation = Propagation.REQUIRES_NEW)
	public void save(User... user){
    	for (User us : user) {
            if (us.getId() == null) {
    	    } else {
	public User load(Long id){
		TypedQuery<User> query = em.createQuery("select a from User a where = ?1", User.class);
		query.setParameter(1, id);
		return query.getSingleResult();
	public List<User> loadAll(){
		TypedQuery<User> query = em.createQuery("select a from User a", User.class);
		return query.getResultList();

	public void delete(Long id) {
		em.createQuery("DELETE FROM User u WHERE").setParameter("id", id).executeUpdate();

So, what actually happand here: 
Spring create new type of repository based on this one. There are two option for creating new type - dynamic proxy via JDK(in this case my repo shuld be declared in interface-way, or via CGLIB (in this case we shuld have CGLIB in classpath)). Switching between these two modea are in transaction config:
    <tx:annotation-driven proxy-target-class="true"  transaction-manager="transactionManager"/>
where true is point to CGLIB proxying.

Changed class wrap all methods in this way that any runtime exception is translated into javax.persistence.PersistenceException.
Also Transactional has these options:
propagation - define transaction strategy (more here: org.springframework.transaction.annotation.Propagation)
rollbackFor option allow to define costum nonRTE for rollback.
noRollbackFor option allow to define costum exception for no rollback.
All TRE by default is rollbacked.
