Does SAP Cloud Platform have any plan to support JPA id generation using a HANA database sequence? At the moment, we're using the default TABLE generation type however that can cause locking issues.

With thanks,

Hello, Scott. If you can use the database sequence to generate pk of a table. Usually, we generate-id on service layer of application by using UUID or Custom ID generator Class. I suggest that using UUID+tableCode (new column of your table) together. It will bring more benefits when doing data migration. thanks.

package com.mytest;
import java.util.UUID;
public class UTest {    
          public static void main(String[] args) {        
                UUID uuid = UUID.randomUUID();
