Since DTO is a retired pattern, what is the best way to pass search critieria from web tier. before I would create a DTo and set its parameters in the web tier and pass it to the business tier for setting the parameters to namedquery, does it mean that now I can create a jpa entity and set its fields and pass it to business tier. is it ok?
