orderBy(o) - JPA CriteriaQuery's method

Specify the ordering expressions that are used to order the query results. Replaces the previous ordering expressions, if any. If no ordering expressions are specified, the previous ordering, if any, is simply removed, and results will be returned in no particular order. The order of the ordering expressions in the list determines the precedence, whereby the first element in the list has highest precedence.
Parameters:
o - list of zero or more ordering expressions
Returns:
the modified query
