A DataObject needs to be associated with a single table.  Of course,
it can have relationships to other tables.  If you really need to have
a DataObject associated with multiple tables and your database
supports views, then you can create a view that you map to your

I'm not sure if this really answers your question, but Cayenne by
default will omit (thereby widening the search) portions of the query
that are missing.  If you have:

firstName = $firstName and lastName = $lastName

and you only provide the query with the $lastName substitution
parameter, then Cayenne drops the firstName = $firstName part of the
query for you.
