ALTER TABLE ... SET INCREMENT BY X... Turns off the "Generated By Default" identity column
constraint
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

                 Key: DERBY-1645
                 URL: http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-1645
             Project: Derby
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: SQL
    Affects Versions: 10.1.3.1, 10.1.3.0
         Environment: Both Ubuntu Linux, Windows XP... Java 1.4.2_x and Java 1.5
            Reporter: Alan Baldwin


I have a table which has an auto-generated key:

create table MyTable  (
   TableId INTEGER GENERATED BY DEFAULT AS IDENTITY NOT NULL,
   StringValue           VARCHAR(20)           not null,
   constraint PK_MyTable primary key (TableId)
)

I verify that GENERATED BY DEFAULT is set:

SELECT * FROM 
sys.syscolumns col 
INNER JOIN sys.systables tab ON col.referenceId = tab.tableid 
WHERE tab.tableName = 'MYTABLE' AND ColumnName = 'TABLEID'

I'm pulling in data for which I need to preserve the ID's:

INSERT INTO MYTABLE (TableId, StringValue) VALUES (1, 'test1')
INSERT INTO MYTABLE (TableId, StringValue) VALUES (2, 'test2')
INSERT INTO MYTABLE (TableId, StringValue) VALUES (3, 'test3')

In the absense of the Derby 10.2 feature (ALTER TABLE WITH RESTART X), I try to just change
the INCREMENT BY value and insert a row so that I can reset the "next" key value:

ALTER TABLE MyTable ALTER TableId SET INCREMENT BY 50

Then I insert a "dummy" record (which I will delete later...) to move the key upwards:

INSERT INTO MYTABLE (StringValue) VALUES ('test53')

However, I can now no longer insert explicit values into the primary key like this:

INSERT INTO MYTABLE (TableId, StringValue) VALUES (-999, 'test3')

I get this error:  SQL Exception: Attempt to modify an identity column 'TABLEID'. 

Upon checking the sys.syscolumns table again, it verifies that the table no longer has an
auto-generated key, but the TableId is still an identity column.
