I'm looking into this atm.
My thinking is to pass a new dedicated Type IdGeneratorKey instead of
RowKey to GridDialect#nextVal() which can carry all the information we
need. The dual use of RowKey for association rows and sequences has been

I guess it is particularly questionable to have an identity generator
mapped to an ad-hoc table based generator. Remember the angle we came from:
make a JPA application work when storing data in Infinispan. Unlike other
datastores, Infinispan has not notion of id generation whatsoever.
sequenceName should map to on of the OgmTableGenetator settings somehow.
valueColumnName is something that I elected no to use because NoSQL
bind to so far do not have a strong schema. And at at given
segmentColumnValue only correspond a single value. It would come and bite
me if someone for the same segment value had two different value column
names to differentiate two different sequence.
Would it really bit you? I think e.g. MongoDB could perfectly handle this
case via two different fields for the two sequences in the same
But as this does not really seem like a best practice, we could also handle
it as a definition error if the same table is used with different value
column names in different generators. We could raise an error during
At which stage, I could invoke the What?! card. But it would make
expose that info for datastores like Cassandra.
I am fine if we put the whole subject back on the table and revisit. This
code has been written back when I was trying to prove that a brick could
