Subject [jira] [Commented] (PHOENIX-922) Select a sequence without a from clause
Date Wed, 03 Sep 2014 18:08:51 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/PHOENIX-922?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=14120180#comment-14120180
] 

Alex Warshavsky commented on PHOENIX-922:
-----------------------------------------

Another improvement would be to allow getting a number of sequences based on a parameter rather
than number of rows. This might require a function rather than simple select statement. E.g.
in postgress, there's a nextval() function. http://www.postgresql.org/docs/8.1/static/functions-sequence.html

Phoenix could have an implementation of nextval(<sequenceName>, [numValues]), 

where numValues is an optional parameter (defaulting to 1) which specifies how many sequences
to return.

SELECT nextval('mysequece', 5) for a sequence with default attributes would return

1
2
3
4
5

> You should be able to select any "generator" type function from Phoenix without specifying
a table.  For instance a sequence needs an arbitrary potentially unrelated table just to get
the next value.  The fix should enable queries like this:
> {code}
> SELECT NEXT VALUE FOR my_seq
> {code}
