is there a better way of returning a value from an Oracle sequence than using something like session.createSQLQuery("select myseq.nextval from dual")

thanks

You can use curval instead of nextval if you don't want to waste a number. Also when you insert with Hibernate remember that that method call returns an object with its ID in it.

Basically, the ways to get the nextval from a sequence is the exact same with or without Hibernate. If I was in a stored procedure directory on Oracle, I would still need to do the exact same SQL from dual to get it without an actual insert statement.
