I have been trying to find an example that will help me but I haven't been able to. Hopefully someone here can help me out.
In my application I have a DTO that I use for the view of my new-delivery page. Do I send the data to my DeliveryService through my controller: (not sure if this is right)
public class DeliveryController {

  private DeliveryService deliveryService;

  @RequestMapping(value="/initForm", method=RequestMethod.GET)
  public String getAdd(Model model){
  DeliveryDto form = new DeliveryDto();
  model.addAttribute("formData", form);
  return "----view----";


  @RequestMapping(value="/postForm", method=RequestMethod.POST)
  public String postAdd(@ModelAttribute("formData") DeliveryDto form, Model model) {

  deliveryService.createDelivery(form.getCustomerName(), form.getCustomerCountry());

  return "----view----";


Or do I retrieve that data in my DeliveryService?
The reason I am using a DTO is that I have some IDs in my Delivery table that I don't want the user to have to enter.
I use a customer Service+DTO to retrieve the ID corresponding to a pair of customerNames and customerCountries.
public class CustomerDaoImpl implements CustomerDao {

private SessionFactory sessionFactory;

public Customer getCTID(String customerName, String customerCountry) { //Is it right to use a query here to get the Id?
    return (Customer) this.sessionFactory.getCurrentSession().createQuery(
               "select customerId from Customer where customerName = :name and customerCountry = :country")
               .setParameter("name", customerName).setParameter("country", customerCountry).uniqueResult();


public class CustomerServiceImpl implements CustomerService {

private CustomerDao customerDao;

public Customer retrieveCTID(String customerName, String customerCountry) {
    return this.customerDao.getCTID(customerName, customerCountry);

I don't know how I would write the DeliveryService/DAO so that it takes some DTO data and the data from CustomerService and persists it as a new delivery in the DeliveryTable.
Thank you for your help!
