How do i create a DTO to pass multiple values between classes

DTOs (Data Transfer Objects) are plain old Java objects. Nothing fancy, just a bunch of get/set methods. Don't define any business logic in your DTOs. All they do is hold data. Hope this helps. David Peterson

Just like any other java class. All variables that hold the values for the various attributes (that you want passed to other classes) should be private (unless you want to create subclasses & want subclasses also to be able to directly reference these vars). You expose these variables (or the values they hold) via get/set methods (ex: getCustomerName(), setCustomerName()).
