public interface UUIDGenerationStrategy extends Serializable
|Modifier and Type||Method and Description|
Generate the UUID.
Which variant, according to IETF RFC 4122, of UUID does this strategy generate? RFC 4122 defines 5 variants (though it only describes algorithms to generate 4): 1 = time based 2 = DCE based using POSIX UIDs 3 = name based (md5 hash) 4 = random numbers based 5 = name based (sha-1 hash) Returning the values above should be reserved to those generators creating variants compliant with the corresponding RFC definition; others can feel free to return other values as they see fit.
