Changes for 2009-09-23[edit]


  • Removed database column name lowercasing kludge -- now using the official way of getting lowercase column names
  • Added reliable way of getting the last insert id -- required by database API
  • Fixed bug where inserted data was always rolled back when the IGNORE flag was passed


  • Stripped out all unused sequence definitions from the database schema -- the current DB2 database schema uses GENERATED BY DEFAULT columns, not sequences
