We recently converted our EJB2.1 application to EJB3 (Jboss 4.2.CP07) and landed in to a problem with EntityExistsException Vs DuplicateKeyException (EJB2).
Earlier with EJB2 we were able to do operation like

try{
<EntityHome>.create(<some object>);
} catch (DuplicateKeyException ex) {
Do some other task ..involving database
}

When we converted to EJB3 ..the code looks like below

try{
em.persist(<some PO>);
} catch (EntityExistsException ex) {
Do some other task ..using em

}

In second case we learnt that we couldn't do any more operations on the em as the transaction is closed, is this the expected behavior?
If yes can anyone please suggest a different way to handle these scenarios ?

It's not whether the session is closed or opened, It's JPAs way to handle duplicates.
This exception is thrown when you try to persist a duplicate entity.

try {
entityManager.create(Obj) ;
}
catch(EEE e) {
}
