Sorry, I wasn't clear about how I'm using DdlUtils.  I'm using ant.  In 
my build.xml file the ant target for DdlUtils contains the following.

>         <ddlToDatabase>
>             <fileset dir="sql">
>                 <include name="waitlist.xml"/>
>             </fileset>

When I run it for mysql my build.xml has

>     <property
>         file="db.properties-mysql"
>     />

And when I run it for postgresql I change build.xml so that it has

>     <property
>         file="db.properties-postgres"
>     />

And in the db.properties-<whatever> files are lines like

> db1_driverClassName=com.mysql.jdbc.Driver
> db1_url=jdbc:mysql://localhost/waitlist


> db1_driverClassName=org.postgresql.Driver
> db1_url=jdbc:postgresql://localhost/waitlist

So it's generating the database specific sql for each one.  But for 
PostgreSQL it's using nextval() with a sequence that hasn't been defined 
or specified.

I'm guessing that I'm doing something wrong or leaving something out 
since it's not creating the sequence.

Ok, wait; I commented out the writeSchemaToDatabase and looked at the 
sql file it generated and the CREATE SEQUENCE is in the sql file.  So 
why is it bombing when it tries to create the tables directly?
