Considered Harmful Still Considered Harmful

Autoincrement Considered Harmful.

Yet another post which talks about some drawbacks of autoincrement columns – well, not really autoincrement columns. A post that talks about some problems you can have in databases, which have little to do with autoincrement columns.

But ‘considered harmful’ makes geeks snap to attention. Anyways, the article is actually interesting – and points out some problems with RESTian architecture, combined with serial numbers on tables – but has little to nothing to do with Autoincrement columns being harmful or otherwise.
