Subject [jira] [Commented] (DERBY-5493) Same value returned by successive calls to a sequence generator.
Date Tue, 10 Apr 2012 23:33:16 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-5493?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13251176#comment-13251176

Mike Matrigali commented on DERBY-5493:

I will review these changes more carefully in next few days, this comment is just based on
your comment describing the changes. Did you 
understand why this approach fixes DERBY-5494 vs the subtransaction  approach?  In the normal
sub transaction case I was thinking
that it should wait on locks and return too much contention on a lock timeout, to take care
of a expected very short lock waits
if 2 threads are trying to update the sequence at same time, but maybe the 1 transaction per
sequence makes this impossible to happen.  

What is the expected behavior of creating a sequence, with respect to autocommit and locking?
 Is the create done in the nested transaction
and autocommitted?

A comment I meant to make before, is that DERBY-5495 requires crash testing, and now there
is a framework to do that in junit tests - 
see store/OCRecoveryTest.java, basically there is a routine to fork out a process to run a
java test procedure and then you just exit which
will run through the "unclean" shutdown and next test connects running through whatever recovery
will do on that unclean shutdown.

> The following script shows the same value being returned from a sequence generator by
two successive NEXT VALUE FOR calls. Thanks to Knut for finding this:
> connect 'jdbc:derby:memory:db;create=true';
> create table t (x int);
> create sequence s;
> autocommit off;
> select count(*) from sys.syssequences with rs;
> values next value for s;
> drop table t;
> rollback;
> -- same value as previous call
> values next value for s;
