I would like ask You about description merge method on page 327:
"The merge method must only be used for entity that exists in database"

In JCP JPA specification I found:
"If X is a new entity instance, a new managed entity instance X' is created and the state of X is
copied into the new managed entity instance X'"

I've tested case call merge on new instance and it seems be a bug on 327 page.
