The new characteristic can have the behavior of with the following enhancements:
   a) Input: will have 10 possible input parameters (that can be any characteristic)
   b) Specification selection: The user will select from a drop-down the Entity link target Specification
   c) Conditions: There will a body section similar with the JPQL option that will support JPQL queries that allow definition of conditions/clauses for filtering the returned value lists.
   d) The JPQL queries will support clauses with other entities & specifications
   e) Output: The output returned by Entity Link will be the list of the instances.
   f) However the output of the Entity Link has to support the return of other characteristic from the selected Specification (the user should be allowed to specify them).
