Class HsqlMaxValueIncrementer

  • All Implemented Interfaces:
    InitializingBean, DataFieldMaxValueIncrementer

    public class HsqlMaxValueIncrementer
    extends AbstractIdentityColumnMaxValueIncrementer
    DataFieldMaxValueIncrementer that increments the maximum value of a given HSQL table with the equivalent of an auto-increment column. Note: If you use this class, your HSQL key column should NOT be auto-increment, as the sequence table does the job.

    The sequence is kept in a table. There should be one sequence table per table that needs an auto-generated key.


    create table tab (id int not null primary key, text varchar(100));
     create table tab_sequence (value identity);
     insert into tab_sequence values(0);
    If "cacheSize" is set, the intermediate values are served without querying the database. If the server or your application is stopped or crashes or a transaction is rolled back, the unused values will never be served. The maximum hole size in numbering is consequently the value of cacheSize.

    NOTE: HSQL now supports sequences and you should consider using them instead: HsqlSequenceMaxValueIncrementer
