So what you are saying is that ResultSetMetaData.isAutoIncrement will 
only return true for a subset of the fields that are actually 
autogenerated? But perhaps it could serve as a starting point.. The jdbc 
apidoc is not very precise on what constitutes an autogenerated key, 
maybe autogenerated=autoincrement is even a valid interpretation?

I'm not trying to improve performance, only to get the correct 
behaviour. I introduced the filtering because the application (actually 
the Spring framework) failed on receiving all fields when it was 
expecting only the generated field(s).
