Q1) Please correct me if i am wrong?

new/Transient State------persist()-----------------Managed State

Manged State ---------- Commit()or rollback()--Detached State

Detached State---------merge()or find()------ ---Managed State

Managed State -------------remove()-------------Removed State

Is there anything i am missing out?

>> Manged State ---------- Commit()or rollback()--Detached State

rollback will detach everything, however a commit using a JPA transaction will continue the persistence context, so the objects will remain managed unless you call clear.
If using a JTA (EJB) transaction, then commit will detached everything.

>> Detached State---------merge()or find()------ ---Managed State

merge with "return" a managed object, the object being merged will remain detached.
Find will return a managed object.
