close() - JPA EntityManagerFactory's method

Close the factory, releasing any resources that it holds. After a factory instance has been closed, all methods invoked on it will throw the IllegalStateException, except for isOpen, which will return false. Once an EntityManagerFactory has been closed, all its entity managers are considered to be in the closed state.
