> I am planning to add a new query by example feature to Criteria Query API.
> The proposed new method will appear in CriteriaBuilder to create a predicate.
> Comments welcome (see below for further details). 
>     /**
>      * Create a predicate based upon the attribute values of a given
>      * "example" entity instance. The predicate is the conjunction 
>      * or disjunction of predicates for subset of attribute of the entity.
>      * <br>
>      * By default, all the singular entity attributes (the basic, embedded
>      * and uni-cardinality relations) that have a non-null or non-default
>      * value for the example instance and are not an identity or version
>      * attribute are included. The comparable attributes can be further
>      * pruned by specifying variable list of attributes as the final argument.
>      * 
>      * @param example an instance of an entity class
>      * @param style specifies various aspects of comparison such as whether
>      * non-null attribute values be included, how string-valued attribute be 
>      * compared, whether the individual attribute based predicates are ANDed
>      * or ORed etc.
>      *  
>      * @return a predicate 
>      */

style,

> ========================================================================
> The limitation is that the style is 'global' i.e. applies to all attributes. If we want
to tune comparison style
> per attribute, the  API gets somewhat more cumbersome to use. Ideas are welcome.
