Subject [jira] Created: (GERONIMO-682) Automatic key generators too restrictive
Date Fri, 17 Jun 2005 04:08:47 GMT
Automatic key generators too restrictive

         Key: GERONIMO-682
     Project: Geronimo
        Type: Bug
  Components: OpenEJB  
    Versions: 1.0-M3    
    Reporter: Aaron Mulder

The SequenceTable automatic key generator always executes a create table statement, and just
ignores any errors.  I don't believe this is appropriate -- I suspect in most cases the user
is not going to expect/want the app server to create tables (or indeed execute any DDL).

The SQL automatic key generator requires an initSQL statement that is always executed.  Again,
I don't feel this is appropriate, since I think it will be much more common for the underlying
database sequence (or whatever) to already exist (and as is it will generate a warning on
every startup *if your database is configured correctly*).

If the create/initialize behavior is strongly desired, there should be a flag to enable it
(defaulting to false IMHO) and/or this step should be skipped if no initSQL is specified.

These appear to actually be TranQL problems, but there's no such category above.  See org.tranql.pkgenerator.*
