Find entity in jpa by primary key

Use the find method of the EntityManager, where the primary key is provided as the second parameter:

public class PartnerRepository {

  @Inject private EntityManager em;

  public Optional<Partner> find(String partnerNumber) {
    return Optional.ofNullable(em.find(Partner.class, partnerNumber));

The entity looks something like the following, with partnerNumber as primary key:

@Table(name = "T_PARTNER")
public class Partner {

  @Column(name = "PARTNER_NUMBER", nullable = false)
  private Integer partnerNumer;

  //other fields ignored for readability
