finding auto_increment value using DatabaseMetaData
Posted by: Joakim Ahlén

We just switched from the old mm.mysql-driver to connector/J. However, i can't find any way to get if a column uses auto increment or not via the getMetaData-function.

With mm.mysql this was stated in the REMARKS-column of the metadata resultset, but with connector/J i can't find it anywhere.

This is absolutely needed if we are going to use connector/J with our application, and we want to since we want to upgrade to mysql 4.1 which mm.mysql does not support if i am correct.

Does anybody know how to accomplish this?

Also, if there is any other way to find out if a column is using the auto_increment attribute from within java, please help me with this.
