Subject RE: How to handle Postgresql sequence in om generation?
Date Fri, 02 May 2008 08:21:44 GMT
Can't you use the sequence generated by Torque ? If you set the table's
idMethod or the database's defaultIdMethod to "native", Torque will take
care of the sequences (see the generated sql).
Otherwise, using the idMethodParam element, you can set the name of the
sequence (I believe the name of the idMethodParameter does not matter, the
value is the name of the sequence).
Default values are currently not intended to be database functions, but
simple objects like "1" or "abc".

P.S. please post questions regarding the usage of Torque to the users list.
