Generic way of writing @SqlInsert ?

I'm using Hibernate 4.0.1.Final. I have a table with a unique column ...

In my DAO, I'd like to be able to write a "createOrUpdate" method such that if there is an object matching the unique key, all I do is update that object, otherwise, a new object is created. I wanted to use the @SQLInsert annotation for this ...

However, in some JUnit tests, we use the HSSQL in-memory database, whereas in other cases we use MySQL 5.5. Is there a less vendor-specific way to accomplish the @SQLInsert without resorting to vendor-specific SQL?

Thanks, - Dave
I agree. Here's the link:
