EE containers are supposed to close the EntityManager

 Description  « Hide
The JPA 2.0 specification section 7.9.1 states the following requirements:
7.9.1 Container Responsibilities
For the management of a transaction-scoped persistence context, if there is no EntityManager alreadyassociated with the JTA transaction:
- The container creates a new entity manager by calling EntityManagerFactory.createEntityManager when the first invocation of an entity manager with PersistenceContextType.TRANSACTION occurs within the scope of a business method executing in the JTA transaction.
- After the JTA transaction has completed (either by transaction commit or rollback), The container closes the entity manager by calling EntityManager.close. [79]
... see JPA 2.0 spec for ommitted text that is not relevant to this discussion ...
[79] The container may choose to pool EntityManagers: it instead of creating and closing in each case, it may acquire one from its pool and call clear() on it.

The following is thus wrong:

Description The JPA spec (3.11) says that a "container-managed" EntityManager should not be closed (by calling close()). Some JavaEE containers ignore this, and are non-compliant as a result but you can ignore such calls if you set this persistence property to true.
