Re: [eclipselink-users] Sequences set via-triggers and the@SequenceGenerator annotation

If ALL the tables in persistence unit are equipped with the triggers then it's easier to subclass the database platform:
class OraclePlatformWithIdentity extends OraclePlatform {
  public OraclePlatformWithIdentity{
  public boolean supportsSequenceObjects() {
    return false;
Pass the subclassed platform name through persistence unit property:
eclipselink.target-database  -> "OraclePlatformWithIdentity"
Alternatively, if only SOME tables use triggers and other use sequence objects in the original way then you need to use SessionCustomizer:
// set the flag in OraclePlatform indicating that it supports "Identity"
OraclePlatform platform = (OraclePlatform)session.getLogin().getPlatform();
// change each sequence associated with table with a trigger to behave like Identity
Hope that helps,
