writing database-independent classes with sequential types
posted 13 years ago
For oracle you would insert a new row into a table whose primary key is an integer sequential type using one syntax, while for other database engines you would use a different syntax. Of course, it's not covered by the ANSI standard, but even so, this kind of type seems quite ubiquitous. Is there a standard way of dealing with the sequential type through the JDBC interface, barring the approach where you generate a different SQL text string to perform an identical operation for each different database?
