I have started using CMP Entities using JBoss 3.0.0/3.0.4 and I require (as many do) to use DB generated PKs. (i.e. identity MS SQL Server/Sybase)
I have been previously using BMP Entities, and I did the ejbCreates by manually adding the Statement.RETURN_GENERATED_KEYS (JDBC 3.0) and it works fine. I also noticed that in JBoss 3.2.0 (betas/RCs) this feature has been finally added.
My question is... is this the only version/branch of JBoss that contains this new feature ? If so, are there plans to merge that feature into 3.0.x? Also, if this isnt being moved into 3.0.x, is the 3.2.x cmp plugin, able to plugin to 3.0.x ? (I assume not)
My post regarding this feature is out of necessity as: - I DO NOT want to continue using BMP - I am stuck with identity columns - and I would like to stay with a Stable Jboss build (unless Jboss 3.2.0 RC1 is stable ? :)
I the JBoss team requires help in this matter, I am willing to pitch in. (I have been nicking your hard work for ages, so I dont mind aiding in the cause)
