Normally i use generators and triggers like you described.
But in some cases i need to ensure that there is no space in my ids.
A generator always raises his value.
So if an exception occurs in my application i do a rollback and the next time
i do an insert there is left out a number in my ids. And this is not allowed.

And i have ensured in my java application that only 1 client can call this insert at one time.

This is likely not a driver issue. GDSException is exception from
database. But why do you use such complex algorithm to generate next
ID? You could get same results by using generators and simple

CREATE GENERATOR id_rechnung_gen;

NEW.id_rechnung = gen_id(id_rechnung_gen, 1);

Your algorithm is also not 100% correct, because you might get same
id in two concurrently executing transaction. Generators were
designed exactly for this purpose, they are out of transaction
control and guarantee unique value.

other tables that looks analog to t_rechnung (with id-column and
after insert trigger) where i never gets this exception.
