Subject [jira] Created: (DERBY-167) Inserting values in an identity column
Date Tue, 08 Mar 2005 18:08:52 GMT
Inserting values in an identity column

         Key: DERBY-167
         URL: http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-167
     Project: Derby
        Type: Improvement
  Components: SQL  
 Environment: SQL
    Reporter: Christian Rodriguez

It is not possible to insert a specific value in a column defined as identity. This makes
it very hard to migrate from other RDBMSs or to import data dumped from other databases. 

For example, an autoincrement column in MySQL should be an identity column. The problem is
that when the data is dumped from MySQL to a file, it generates inserts with values. These
values cant be inserted in the Derby table. 

Posible solutions: 1. being able to "generate by default as identity" 2. being able to disable
the "identity" feature for a column 3. being able to generate a column as non identity and
after data is populated, alter table to add the "identity" to the column.
