I think you are trying to reinvent the wheel here. Do I understand you 
correctly that you want your POJO to handle SQL queries? Why don't you 
just load it by some other class and stay clean with your POJO class? 
Maybe because of lazy loading?
To respond your queries, I think it's not possible and moreover IMO it 
should not be possible to do things you ask for.

I think binding code tries to find out which values were changed and 
bind only if something was changed. That should explain why get is called.

It's good that you ask specific questions but you should also include 
few sentences describing what you want to achieve because it may be that 
you just try to do something in wrong way.
