Class Guid


  • @Scriptable
    public final class Guid
    extends Object
    This class represents global universal IDs.

    Instances of this class are immutable.

    This class uses the SHAPRNG for secure random numbers and the SHA-1 algorithm for hashing to 20 bytes.

        public static Guid createInstance​(byte[]... p_randomBytes)
        Creates an instance of GUID using given random bytes.
        Parameters:
        p_randomBytes - Random bytes that are used to create the GUID.
        Returns:
        An initialized instance of Guid.
      • getBytes

        public byte[] getBytes()
        Get the GUIDs 20 bytes.
        Returns:
        A copy of this GUIDs bytes.
      • isStringRepresentation

        public static boolean isStringRepresentation​(String p_str)
