Subject [jira] Updated: (DERBY-712) Support for sequences

Rick Hillegas updated DERBY-712:

    Attachment: catalogs_h.diff

Hi Suran,

The failures occur during the test of soft-upgrade. The initial failure is caused because
the test is trying to drop a schema. In doing so, the data dictionary checks to see whether
the schema is empty. Since you added a new kind of schema object (sequences) and logic to
check whether SYSSEQUENCES is empty, the data dictionary tries to scan SYSSEQUENCES. But in
soft-upgrade mode, this table doesn't exist. It is only created during hard upgrade. That's
what results in the funny -1 conglomerate id, which raises the initial exception.The fix is
to only scan SYSSEQUENCES if the data dictionary is at level 10.6 or greater. I added this
check on top of the changes you made to DD_Version and have uploaded the resulting patch:

With this patch, the upgrade tests run cleanly for me. So does standalone DatabaseMetaDataTests.
I am running the full regression tests now.

> Would like to see support added for sequences.  This would permit a select against the
sequence to always obtain a ever increasing/decreasing value.  The identity column works fine
but there are times for applications where the application needs to obtain the sequence number
and use it prior to the database write.  Subsequent calls to the table/column would result
in a new number on each call.
> SQL such as the following:
> SELECT NEXT VALUE FOR sequence_name FROM sometable ; would result in a next value.
