ID.FIELD for Id flexconnector should allow text as an id and not default to a number.

Some database use a mix of test and numbers as the id for tuples.  The id.filed in the ID based flexconnector is by default a number.  i.e the mas id select works for say  ffee78dc1b2b12c7531a228a6580a7059f1ad0be but when the connector attempts to assign it to id.field it throw a java error..  Unfortunately this type of data cannot be cast to an acceptable value.

java.lang.NumberFormatException: For input string: "ffee78dc1b2b12c7531a228a6580a7059f1ad0be"

So if this value works for the maxid.query it should also work for the id.field which is mandatory.
