DBAL-113: The Sequence class lacks last value / start value #1071

Jira issue originally created by user thomasez:

The Sequence class only has initalValue which means that when a sequence is altered (by DROP and CREATE) the existing lastvalue, aka existing sequence ID is lost and the first attempt on flushing a new record results in a pkey exception.

This result in the sequence counter starting all over.

This can be handled by setting _initalValue to whatever is the last sequence value but since it is also used for setting MINVALUE this may not be a good idea. They should be split.

Not sure what name to use, last_value is from postgresql but I'm sure others use different names.

Not sure if this is entirely relevant to the question, but you can get the full details on a sequence by selecting * from it:

test=# select * from testidseq;
sequencename | last_value | start_value | increment_by | max_value | min_value | cache_value | log_cnt | is_cycled | iscalled
testidseq | 1 | 1 | 1 | 9223372036854775807 | 1 | 1 | 0 | f | t
(1 row)

Fixed by using ALTER SEQUENCE which only changes the increment.
