Yeah, something like this should work:

SELECT COUNT(a) FROM User a WHERE = :userId AND like :userName

it's close to similar.

The former results in a JDBC parameter inclusion and a call to PreparedStatement.setXYZ(a),
the later is embedded in the SQL as a String. So the former let's JDBC driver to do the right
type conversions and is a recommended way to insert *parameter* objects in the query. The
later form can be used to dynamically build parts of SQL query that are not parameters. It
will work for some parameters as well (e.g. Strings), but won't work for others (e.g. Date).
