Thanks !

It was that, a big big thanks.
I'm still wondering why the API do not provide a removeAllGroups and removeALLFields, so even
without knowing the name of any groups or fields, the fetch plan would be 100% empty.

I thought that it was already done by that code :
        final FetchPlan fetchPlan = entityManager.getFetchPlan();

Now, thanks to you, I'm doing the following :
        final FetchPlan fetchPlan = entityManager.getFetchPlan();

In fact, you right, I read that but I still thought I didn't have fetchGroup forgetting the
default one.

Exactly that !

Yes definitively, I would have notices the extra fetchPlan.removeFetchGroup(FetchGroup.NAME_DEFAULT);

OK, this was like others recents question a way to confirm what I try to do is correct. When
something goes wrong, I always suspect my own understanding first.

Thanks a lot, I could spent days without finding that default fetchgroup thing.
