MySql auto increment

Last Modified: 2013-11-24
hello experts,

I have a created a table with primary key as auto increment and i am accessing that table from my application using Hibernate.

For example,i have inserted 10 records from 1 to 10 as primary key(auto incremented)....if i delete any record from my application and inserts new record it is entering as 11 th record........how to make the table such that it should not break the sequence.

If i delete 5th record, the next record(6th) should occupy that place.....is it possible..!!
