<SequentialGuid> Element

Sets the identity strategy of the enclosing element to retrieve a Guid from the underlying relational database system.

<PersistentField [fieldName="fieldName"]>




<PersistentField [fieldName="fieldName"]



enabled: If set to true, the field is initialised with a server-side generated Guid.


·    The mapped property must be of type Guid.

·    This mapping feature is translated to <DefaultValue rawSqlInitializer="NEWSEQUENTIALID()"/> in MS SQL Server 2005.

·    With database platforms that do not support this feature, the fields’s client-side initialisation must be mapped using either <NativeIdGenerator/> or <NewGuid/>.

·    This mapping feature can only be applied to read only properties (i.e. can only have a getter).
