Subject [jira] [Commented] (DERBY-5151) Sequence without cache
Date Fri, 25 Mar 2011 16:40:05 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-5151?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13011272#comment-13011272

Rick Hillegas commented on DERBY-5151:
--------------------------------------

Aha. My dyslexic eyes now see Bryan's point that Oracle and DB2 differ in the treatment of
the syntactic sugar: DB2 puts a space between the NO and the CACHE. For me, that argues for
not supporting the syntactic sugar and just going with the Postgres syntax. What else am I
missing? Thanks.

> Currently, a sequence in Derby always uses a pre allocating cache. I'm working on an
usecase which requires a number to increase with a fixed value. The usecase fails after a
restart because of the pre allocating cache.
> I've created a patch that adds the options CACHE | NO CACHE to the create sequence statement.
When no cache is provided, the pre allocating cache size will be set to 1, which results in
a "no cache sequence".
> I've followed the CYCLE | NO CYCLE code as much as possible. Tested it in my own app
and it seems to work fine.
