You can have second query that reads immidiately after insert. Put in this query parameters that you used to generate the record. It should bring you back your id.

some of the new drivers that implement the JDBC 3.0 interface have a Statement.getGeneratedKeys() method. Otherwise, you are looking at doing something like mentioned above or create your own autogenerated key using a millisecond date representation( long datatype ) as the key.

The preferred way would be JDBC 3.0 getGeneratedKeys(), but usually there is also database-specific syntax to get the last key generated in the current transaction; eg SELECT @@IDENTITY on SQL Server. You would execute this as you would any SQL query.
