Subject [jira] Commented: (TORQUE-128) remove autoIncrement attribute of column element
Date Fri, 10 Sep 2010 19:16:39 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/TORQUE-128?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12908152#action_12908152

Thomas Vandahl commented on TORQUE-128:

Well, I have no problem with the name. It actually exactly describes what it does for the
column: "automatically increment its value" Just because others call this different we should
not use foggy terms for simple things :-)

I would leave it in as-is.

>                 Key: TORQUE-128
>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/TORQUE-128
>             Project: Torque
>          Issue Type: Sub-task
>    Affects Versions: 4.0
>            Reporter: Thomas Fischer
>             Fix For: 4.0
> In the 3.3 schema, the id method for a column is determined by the idMethod attribute
of the table, the defaultIdMethod attribute of the database and the primaryKey attribute of
the column. This is sufficient for determining the idMethod.
> However, in the 3.3 schema, there is still the autoIncrement attribute which kind of
overrides the settings outlined above. There is no such equivalent for sequence generation,
thus the attribute is bad for database interoperability.
> Therefore I'd suggest to remove this attribute with no replacement. The consequence would
be that it would no longer be possible to have auto_increment on columns which are no primary
key (but again, torque supports no such feature for sequence generation).
