Generic trigger for maintaining the Audit Log

This trigger will work even if you don't have the primary key on any table. Mechanism to configure the primary key in config table has been provided. This can be very helpful to solve the system audit requirements without much efforts.

Disclaimer : Audit Log trigger has performance overhead. It’s meant for table which is not frequently updated, deleted or inserted. Please take precaution when creating the trigger on the table having too many columns.
