Enum IdType

    • Enum Constant Detail

      • IDENTITY

        public static final IdType IDENTITY
        Use a Database Identity (autoincrement) to generate the identity.
      • SEQUENCE

        public static final IdType SEQUENCE
        Use a Database sequence to generate the identity.

        Note: Some databases support getGeneratedKeys with sequences and this then does not involve an extra statement to return the id.


        public static final IdType GENERATOR
        Use an IdGenerator to generate the identity (prior to insert).

        Note: There is a IdGenerator for UUID's and it is automatically assigned to id properties of type UUID.

      • EXTERNAL

        public static final IdType EXTERNAL
        Expected that the identity is externally set (for example a ISO code for country or currency or a user defined code for lookup tables).

        Used when the key is a compound key or lookup table code.

      • AUTO

        public static final IdType AUTO
        Auto mapping to platform preferred identity strategy.
    • Method Detail

      • values

        public static IdType[] values()
        Returns an array containing the constants of this enum type, in the order they are declared. This method may be used to iterate over the constants as follows:
        for (IdType c : IdType.values())
        an array containing the constants of this enum type, in the order they are declared
      • valueOf

        public static IdType valueOf​(String name)
        Returns the enum constant of this type with the specified name. The string must match exactly an identifier used to declare an enum constant in this type. (Extraneous whitespace characters are not permitted.)
        name - the name of the enum constant to be returned.
        the enum constant with the specified name
        IllegalArgumentException - if this enum type has no constant with the specified name
        NullPointerException - if the argument is null
