persist() null pointer exception

I have yet been able to insert a record into a table using the Entitymanager. Everytime I use the persist method I get a null pointer exception. I have a person entity with id(auto incrememted), name, job, salary,description, countyId(foreign key) in a MySql table call Person. My servlet creates a Manager class and passes in parameters submitted representing Person information.

The manager class looks like this:

The PersonFacade class i am using is a netbeans generated session bean:

and AbstractFacade is as follows:

edit: Person entity class

I can read person entries from the database using the personFacades findAll() method but I can't write to it using the create() method without a null pointer exception showing up. All the objects I use are not pointing to a null reference so I can't get my head around it! I have seen examples all over the net that use the persist method. Could someone please help?
