Hi all. I'm playing with standalone ZODB at the moment trying to get a
better understanding of its use in applications. I come from a
PHP/MySQL background, and I'm taking my first steps with Python at the
One of the things I'm not understanding about ZODB is assigning
incremental IDs to objects. For instance, if I were to be writing a
support-ticket system I'd want to give each ticket a unique number,
but one that's "human-useable" (otherwise you could just use a UUID -
try giving one of those over the phone!).
Also, how would one add a new item to the db in this way?
self.id = '' # How do I add a new incremental ID here?
# and later on in the app
tkt = Ticket()
dbroot[?????] = tkt
How would one assign a unique ID to the root at that point?
