try this:



ExpressionBuilder builder = new ExpressionBuilder();
Expression expression = builder.get("LastName").equal("MrJohnSmith").or(builder.get("MiddleName").equal("MrJohnSmith")).or(builder.get("FirstName").equal("MrJohnSmith"));

Vector list = uow.readAllObjects(Information.class, expression);

In that case it would be


ExpressionBuilder builder = new ExpressionBuilder();
Expression expression = builder.get("LastName").equal("Mr").and(builder.get("MiddleName").equal("John")).and(builder.get("FirstName").equal("Smith"));

Vector list = uow.readAllObjects(Information.class, expression);
