Need ability to set next available generated primary key value

Key: CAY-972
URL: https://issues.apache.org/cayenne/browse/CAY-972
Project: Cayenne
Issue Type: New Feature
Components: Cayenne Core Library
Affects Versions: UNDEFINED FUTURE
Reporter: Michael Bergens
Assignee: Andrus Adamchik

Looking at this code, quote-

protected String createSequenceString(DbEntity ent) {
StringBuffer buf = new StringBuffer();
.append(" START WITH 200") // 200??
.append(" INCREMENT BY ")
return buf.toString();
and similar in all *PkGenerator classes, - how come this 200 is hard-coded? Why it's 200?

Anyway, as we implemented data import/export into/from table.xml files using Cayenne maps as a guide, now we need to reset the pk generators for generated pk columns which are all integer in our case. For now it amounts to having our own extension to Cayenne, for each DBMS that we use. As the tables are loaded by the import, the loader tracks max PK value for each table loaded and after loading is done, it would shoot SQL into the database with a maximum for each table so the next Cayenne operation will provide correct PK value.

Wonder if these next available PK values could be made configurable with Cayenne core API?
