Hi Andrés.

Thanks for your help.

I will test it tonight at home.

Hi Felipe,

Here is a docs page on auto-incremented keys:

Also see my comments below...

No, in 1.2 and newer this is optional. But you still want to do that  
if you are to follow the advice below.

True, there are two things involved in making auto-increment work.  
First you must select "Database-Generated" for "PK Generation  
Strategy" for each table in question. Second - Cayenne DbAdapter must  
support it. HSQLDB adapter thinks that it doesn't (although in fact  
it does), so you'll need to manually flip Auto PK flag:

DataNode node = ...
JdbcAdapter adapter = (JdbcAdapter) node.getAdapter();

(I'll log an issue in Jira to make sure Cayenne does the right thing  
in the future).
