Subject Re: String-with-number sort and insert order preservation
Date Wed, 03 Feb 2010 12:44:31 GMT
Actually, no. If you need to index data by IP, you just add indexing by IP
column. If you want to perform in future meaningful sort by meaningless IP,
you will have to think about such cases as changes the IP column - then the
order might break. Answering your question, if you really think you need
control over PK values, you either use custom PKs (and generate them
yourself), or, if the speed isn't priority, do many sequent commits instead
of one (if the logic of your app allows you)
