Subject unique key generation
Date Mon, 07 Feb 2011 21:57:36 GMT

I am developing a session management system using Cassandra and need
to generate unique sessionIDs (cassandra columnfamily keys). Does
anyone know of an elegant/simple way to accomplish this? I am not sure
about using time based uuids on the client as there a chance that
multiple clients could generate the same ID. I've heard suggestions of
using zookeeper as a source for the IDs, but was just hoping that
there might be something simpler for my purposes.
