I have a need to create a field for a custom entry and workflow. I need to be able to read, update and store back a number within vibe so that each new entry has a new number. Think of a PO system or a numbering system that has to increment each time.

How is this done. I know I can create custom jsp fields but I'm not clear on how I can make a field that survives a reboot of the server, etc. Do I have to create a new type??

thank you
