Hi,
I'd like to use an identity-column And I am not quite sure how to receive the used number, if I used default.
Actually I need the particular identity-value for the entries of other tables, since they are supposed to reference it.
 
Am I forced to give those identities for my own like with a sequence-number, or can I somwhow get it by some "magic" statement?
--------------------------------
here my particular case:
CREATE TABLE "APP"."INPUTFILES"
                                (
                                  INPUTFILE_ID   int generated always as identity
                                  ,"NAME"        VARCHAR(512) NOT NULL
                                  ,"TMPST_IN"    TIMESTAMP NOT NULL DEFAULT CURRENT_TIMESTAMP
                                );
 
CREATE TABLE "APP"."OUTPUTFILES"
                                (
                                  OUTPUTFILE_ID int generated always as identity
                                  ,INPUTFILE_ID     int
                                  ,"NAME"        VARCHAR(512) NOT NULL
                                  ,"TMPST_IN"    TIMESTAMP NOT NULL DEFAULT CURRENT_TIMESTAMP
                                );
 
 
ALTER TABLE "APP"."INPUTFILES" ADD CONSTRAINT "PK_INPUTFILE_ID" PRIMARY KEY ("INPUTFILE_ID");
 
ALTER TABLE "APP"."OUTPUTFILES" ADD CONSTRAINT "PK_OUTPUTFILE_ID" PRIMARY KEY ("OUTPUTFILE_ID");

ALTER TABLE "APP"."OUTPUTFILES" ADD CONSTRAINT "FK_INPUTFILE_ID" FOREIGN KEY ("INPUTFILE_ID") REFERENCES "APP"."INPUTFILES" ("INPUTFILE_ID") ON DELETE CASCADE ON UPDATE RESTRICT;

---------------

Am I right that I need to use generated by default as identity instead of int generated always as identity
And that there is no way to get the identity value if generated by derby?
