page 304 listing 9.1
in the undoItemChanges() method
first call merge() method to attach the item entity, then call refresh() method to populate the item entity with data from database.

My question is that how can the refresh method get the old data from database since before the refresh method get called, the merge method has updated the database with the data from the current item entity?
