Just a general note here...  not every tool is suitable for every project.
iBatis solves a very LARGE set of needs, but it might be that it just
doesn't solve THIS one (it might, but it's sounding like not...)

Good luck in any case, and I wish I had a nifty solution for you.

Out of curiosity, are you using ibatis' daos, or rolling your own?
