CDI specification has so called producer methods, allowing to create (or retrieve) objects to be injected.

JPA specification should explicitly state whether is it allowed for Stateful Session bean to have a producer method that returns extended EntityManager?
For example, is this legal:

public class MyConversationBean {
private EntityManager em;

public EntityManager getEntityManager()

{ return em; }


This would be useful if conversation is implemented with several session beans and they all want to share a single extended EntityManager.

I think this is probably more an EJB issue than a JPA one, but in any case
it is something that we should evaluate for the next release.
