> Make VM naming services injectable and in their own module
> ----------------------------------------------------------
>                 Key: CLOUDSTACK-9003
>                 URL:
>             Project: CloudStack
>          Issue Type: Improvement
>      Security Level: Public(Anyone can view this level - this is the default.) 
>            Reporter: Jeffrey Hair
>            Priority: Minor
> Proposal: Make the various classes/code that give VMs and other resources hostnames,
hypervisor guest names, and UUIDs into their classes as injectable dependencies in their own
module under the core or backend module.
> This proposal originally only concerned the VirtualMachineName class and can be broken
down into several parts:
> * Make the VirtualMachineName class an injectable dependency instead of being full of
static methods.
> * Refactor the generateHostName method in UserVmManagerImpl to be backed by an injectable
service which generates host names.
> * Move the UUIDManagerImpl from the core module to a new module (grouped with the other
2 ideally).
> Rationale:
> * VirtualMachineName is one of the few remaining classes that has static methods tangled
like spaghetti throughout the code. This change will put it in line with the rest of the management
server codebase and opens the door to extensibility. Which brings us to...
> * Extensibility: The ultimate goal of this feature is to provide 3rd party developers
the option of changing default instance/resource naming policies. Currently this is possible
in a very limited fashion with the global setting, but this proposal makes it
much more extensible.
> By moving the naming-related services (VirtualMachineName, UUIDManager, and more as added/discovered)
to their own module, the module can be excluded by and different ones substituted
in. Alternatively, it could use the adapter model that other classes use, and the user can
configure which adapters are active and also provide custom ones.
> A good use case for this functionality is using a different style naming to emulate other
cloud providers such as AWS (i-abc123) or GCE.
