I have an entity bean (CMP) I need to design which must have a primary key field generated automatically, which is independent of the data stored in the entity.
I (at least for now) will be using JBoss. Is there a standard way in java to create a unique string, like GUID stuff in windows?
Am I thinking about this wrong? Should I be doing something else instead? I am moving a PHP web application to J2EE, and will be loosing the auto incrementing column DB feature if I do this so it is DB independent.
Thanks for any help,
