I'm agree about XML files but not for all datas. I think that only "static"
datas should be stored  in files but others are used intensively for
requests or for the UI presentation so, in this case, I prefer SQL.
About sequence number issue, it is easy to resolve it with JPA because we
have the hand on all without a big effort.
