    Generates necessary database objects to provide automatic primary key support.
    List<String> createAutoPkStatements​(List<DbEntity> dbEntities)
    Returns a list of SQL strings needed to generates database objects to provide automatic primary support for the list of entities.
    void dropAutoPk​(DataNode node, List<DbEntity> dbEntities)
    Drops any common database objects associated with automatic primary key generation process.
    List<String> dropAutoPkStatements​(List<DbEntity> dbEntities)
    Returns SQL string needed to drop database objects associated with automatic primary key generation.
    Object generatePk​(DataNode dataNode, DbAttribute pk)
    Generates a unique and non-repeating primary key for specified PK attribute.
    DbAdapter getAdapter()
    Get an adapter associated with current PkGenerator
    void reset()
    Resets any cached primary keys forcing generator to go to the database next time id generation is requested.
    void setAdapter​(DbAdapter q)
    Install the adapter associated with current PkGenerator

    • createAutoPk

      void createAutoPk​(DataNode node, List<DbEntity> dbEntities) throws Exception
      Generates necessary database objects to provide automatic primary key support.
      Parameters:
      node - node that provides access to a DataSource.
