close() - JPA EntityManager's method

Close an application-managed entity manager. After the close method has been invoked, all methods on the EntityManager instance and any Query and TypedQuery objects obtained from it will throw the IllegalStateException except for getProperties, getTransaction, and isOpen (which will return false). If this method is called when the entity manager is associated with an active transaction, the persistence context remains managed until the transaction completes.
Throws:
IllegalStateException - if the entity manager is container-managed
