Yeah, as I already wrote in my first mail, that's the workaround I'm
currently using - COALESCE everywhere. However, it bothers me that I'm
repeating the same expression multiple times.
I was thinking also of writing some stored procedure in order to
determine whether NEXTVAL was already called and in case it was - to
call CURRVAL instead. Something like that:
CREATE FUNCTION nextcurrval(x_sequence regclass)
RETURNS int8 AS
WHEN others THEN
LANGUAGE 'plpgsql' VOLATILE;
The thing is that it works only per session and not per SQL statement,
i.e. RULE. So, in case I have two or more inserts in one session it will
not work correctly - it will always return CURRVAL.
BTW, I didn't manage to find out what's the exception error code for the
"CURRVAL sequence not yet defined" error - that's why I used 'others'.
Anyway, I'll write here when I find other interesting solutions.
