SQL Server 2005 Optional Parameteres To use it in WHERE conditions

Hi Guys
I am trying to create stored procedure to use it for quering purposes , let take this example to show what i needd exactly
create stored procedure GetJVS
@Jv_id int
, @Jv_BK nvarchar(10)
,@Debit  int
,@Credit int
,EntryDAte smalldatetime
,Updateddate smalldatetime
Select * from jvs WHERE ............
I need the to Put the condition after Where as optional and if he didnt supply this is means it will not be in hte where condition
In other word
suppose this query
select * from jvs where jv_id=@jv_id and credit = @credit
so if i specify the a default value for parameter in stored procedure creationto be =NULL  the the stamenet it will be
Select * from jvs where jv_id=@jv_id and credit =9.00  and ,@Debit  int
=NULL  And EntryDAte  = NULL  AndUpdateddate = NULL
so this is not i need
what i need is
Select * from jvs where jv_id=@jv_id and credit =9.00  
and forget any parameter the user dont supply
so what i should do to get that

(AndUpdateddate = @Updateddate  OR @Updateddate IS NULL)

Or  Updateddate = ISNULL(Updateddate , @Updateddate)
Or you make the sql query dynamic, but that's not neccesary

Using OR will not solve the problem , logically it will get any record mathc with ANY condition in where statment

Ok, sorry, I thought you meant that parameters that were NULL shouldn't be taken into consideration in the where clause... Like this

create stored procedure GetJVS
@Debit  int = NULL
@Credit int = NULL
Select * from jvs where
(debit = @debit OR @debit IS NULL) AND
(crebit = @crebit OR @debit IS NULL)
