The goal is to create a view criteria with a bind variable and to prevent the user to put a value in this bind variable at runtime.

For example, a requirement may be to create this view criteria : <COLUMN1> >= :<BIND_VARIABLE> and <COLUMN2>='<FIXED_VALUE>', and when :<DYNAMIC_VALUE> is null, get all rows matching the <FIXED_VALUE>.
That can be done in the where clause of the view : (<COLUMN1> >=:<BIND_VARIABLE> or :<BIND_VARIABLE> is null) and <COLUMN2>='<FIXED_VALUE>'. But how to do the 'or :<BIND_VARIABLE> is null' in a view criteria ?
