>From what I can see in the Derby documentation, it's not possible to specify the value of a sequence as the default value for a column. Is my reading of this correct?
I've seen solutions online for Oracle, which also supports sequences, that suggest using a before insert trigger to modify the value of a column with a sequence value if the value is not specified. This seems like it's more work than it should be; specifying it as a default in the table definition makes much more sense to me.
Thanks for any insights you have,
