> According to JavaDoc, OpenJPAEntityManager.createInstance() method 
>        public <T> T createInstance(Class<T> cls);
>      behaves as follows:
> "Create a new instance of type <code>cls</code>. If <code>cls</code>
>   an interface or an abstract class whose abstract methods follow the
>   JavaBeans convention, this method will create a concrete implementation
>   according to the metadata that defines the class"
> The method fails when T is an interface. The failure may be due to incorrect user configuration,
however, further
> information on this extension method is not available in OpenJPA documentation.
> Firstly, how to specify metadata for a interface that has bean-style methods? 
> Possibilities are:
> a) Annotating the Java interface definition with @Entity 
> b) Specifying in <class>org.acme.IPerson</class> in persistence.xml
> Either of the above fails. a) fails at parsing b) fails with "no metadata" 
> There may be a correct but undocumented way of specifying a managed interface. If that
is the case, then this JIRA report should be treated as a documentation bug.
