Yes, you can do this by accessing the sequence, and then inserting that value (explicitly), as two sequential statements in a transaction. What I was referring to was the standard oracle method of defining a sequence and using an on-insert trigger to bind the sequence to the id column of the table (so that inserts *implicitly* fetch from the sequence). For the case of the sequence used in a trigger (thus your code is not directly accessing the sequence), this is The Way. However, if you're not using triggers to pull from your sequence implicitly, then you can certainly fetch from the sequence and just use that value.
