Even for retrieves? I like using map as my parameter object for
retrieves. I always seem to run into cases where the POJO itself
doesn't really fit for retrieves because you often need extra
parameters that I don't feel like sticking in as properties on my
pojo. Maps seem to work nice for this.  ( Sometimes I'll create a
FooBarSearchCriteria object, if it's parameters chosen from a
front-end, but often a Map is just fine.)

Don't fear the Map! </vic>
