That may be just the ticket.  I wanted to avoid all the boilerplate of
creating and committing transactions.  If I inject an EntityManager into my
LocalClient, is it managed by the container?  Or does it behave in a more
Java SE manner?  Does it start and automatically commit the transaction?

Mainly I'm looking to do whatever is simplest to get the
auto-context-closing behavior of the local InitialContext, because that
wipes out my in-memory H2 database automatically between tests.  I wanted to
combine that behavior with automatic transaction management to eliminate
EntityManager boilerplate operations.  Whatever is the simplest way to do
this involving the least code--I'm all ears.
