Hi Charles,

Thanks for reading and taking the time to write a response! Much appreciated :)

The database has no business generating entity IDs — it must be the responsibility of the application.

The primary key’s datatype was of no concern to this article. I simply just stated how I do it, and that you should always choose whatever makes sense to your application.

I’ll remember your advice about also stating possible consequences and other things to be aware of :)
