In trying to work out the issue I was having in the other write, I noticed that same database column names could cause a problem which was fixed in 1.0.4. In trying to upgrade to 1.0.4, my maven project is failing due to many pom file issues found at http://repo1.maven.org/maven2/ojb/db-ojb/1.0.4/db-ojb-1.0.4.pom.
Likely there should be two different pom files. One for doing the local build and one for doing the external pull in.
Also In trying to get the new table for the HighLowSequence I followed the link http://db.apache.org/ojb/repository_internal.xml.txt. It holds a value of "name" instead of "tableName" as it was in 1.0.3. Had to switch back to "tableName" to get the table to work.
