Sequence Caching Attempt Failing in JTA Managed Environments with PostgreSQL

      Fuse (JBoss) ESB 6.0.0-redhat-024 (Karaf 2.3.0)
      OpenJPA 2.2.2
      Apache Aries 1.0.0 (JPA/JTA/JNDI/Blueprint)


      About a year ago, there was a bug (OPENJPA-2196) that I contributed a patch to that deals with cases where OpenJPA's sequence caching cannot be used if the native sequence in the database is not owned by the role connecting to the database. This patch was included in OpenJPA 2.2.2.

      Since then, I've started using JTA-managed transactions in my container (the container being JBoss Fuse ESB, using Aries JPA/JNDI/JTA), and have hit the following snags with my previous fix:

      1. When the attempt to ALTER SEQUENCE ... INCREMENT BY fails, it basically hoses the entire transaction, causing the next thing (which is to get the next value in the sequence) to fail because the transaction is now invalid and must be rolled back.

      2. Trying to work around this using either ConnectionFactory2Name or the non-jta-data-source configuration items in my persistence.xml file seems to never matter, as ALL native sequences in OpenJPA are of type TYPE_CONTIGUOUS, and thus it will always choose the managed (jta-data-source or ConnectionFactoryName) methods to attempt to modify the sequence. I cannot see where it attempts to suspend the transaction, either.

      Perhaps there is a workaround, but I cannot see it. Does anyone else have any ideas on what could be done to make this work?
