Subject definition for autoincrement handling
Date Fri, 05 Dec 2003 18:04:52 GMT
i could not find a definition how autoincrement should be handled for 
sql generation ...
at the moment it seems to depend on the used rdbms ...

for postgres we use sequences to create the ids even if they are not 
defined as autoincrement, while we use SERIAL for other autoincrement 
columns ...

for other rdbms the pks have to be defined as autoincrement ... and only 
pks support autoincrement ...

i think it's time to define how it works

here are some questions:

* support autoincrement only for pks?
* what is the prefered way to generate ids for postgresql?
* if idMethod=native | idbroker, ignore autoincrement for pks and always 
auto increment?
