Annotation Type Sequence

public @interface Sequence

Annotation for mimicing auto-incrementing fields. Currently, only one auto- incrementing field is allowed per entity, but could be modified in the future if required (just add a @Sequences annotation that help an array of @Sequence annotations). This is used in conjunction with the Kuali sequence managers rather than the standard JPA generated value annotations. The reason is that Kuali uses a sequence like algorithm for all supported databases (mysql, oracle) rather than identity or auto-incrementing fields.
