public class MySQLMaxValueIncrementer
extends AbstractColumnMaxValueIncrementer

DataFieldMaxValueIncrementer that increments the maximum value of a given MySQL table with the equivalent of an auto-increment column. Note: If you use this class, your MySQL 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. The table type of the sequence table should be MyISAM so the sequences are allocated without regard to any transactions that might be in progress.


create table tab (id int unsigned not null primary key, text varchar(100));
 create table tab_sequence (value int not null) type=MYISAM;
 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.

Description copied from class: AbstractDataFieldMaxValueIncrementer
Determine the next key to use, as a long.
