Is is possible to ignore some parameters dynamically or check for nullity and then include them in the Query.
I have a finder method with 5 possible search criteria but it is possible that only 2 are supplied in which case i want to eliminate the other do i do this...the params i am talking abt are dates..
Any help will be appreciated

Dynamic queries are not a part of EJB QL 2.0. However, many vendors provide extensions to allow this type of functionality.
So the answer is: Yes, but not in a vendor independent way.
