It is, hopefully, temporary. We ran into some OSGi issues because some of the
javax.transaction classes are in the JDK and some are in GlassFish. We think we
know how to fix it and we're testing the fix. Our intent is that this
subpackage will go away before the final release, and everything will be in the
javax.transaction package.
