Description: ------------ It would be interesting if we could define the maximum allowed sequence length instead of the default 26 chars (Specially if not using Oracle). I'm using postgres, and sometimes DB_Table nextId break on some long table names. Thank you.

You're not the first person that requests this change. The historic reason for these rather short sequence names is indeed Oracle with its 30 character limitation. DB_Table's goal is to provide a package that allows to be used with any of the supported DBMS. I can only think of a class property for disabling this limitation, defaulting to false, and with a big warning that the code might stop working if used with Oracle. Do you have another idea for the implementation of your request?

I agree completely with you! I think it would be a conditional define for this flag. The user define this constant before inclusion of the class or in a wrapper class.

Okay, thanks for your opinion. I'll try to work on this soon (hopefully until the end of the month).
