javax.persistence
public interface: EntityManagerFactory [javadoc | source] The EntityManagerFactory interface is used by the application to obtain an application-managed entity manager. When the application has finished using the entity manager factory, and/or at application shutdown, the application should close the entity manager factory. Once an EntityManagerFactory has been closed, all its entity managers are considered to be in the closed state.
Method from javax.persistence.EntityManagerFactory Summary:

Once an EntityManagerFactory has been closed, all its entity managers are considered to be in the closed state.
