Subject [jira] [Commented] (LANG-778) Add UUIDUtils.toByteArray and UUIDUtils.fromByteArray
Date Wed, 23 Nov 2011 08:47:41 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LANG-778?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13155754#comment-13155754
] 

Joerg Schaible commented on LANG-778:
-------------------------------------

bq. It seems a shame not to be able to use the long=>ba conversion elsewhere.

I thought about this, but do I have to care about big or little endian then? UUID simply defines
a sequence of 16 bytes. What should ByteUtils do? Simply assume big endian as JVM standard?
Note, that we have EndianUtils in commons-io.

> A UUID represents 16 bytes. In some situation (e.g. using DBs that do not have native
support for the type UUID) it is necessary to use directly the bytes. The JDK does not support
the transformation from UUID to bytes and back, therefore I'd like to add UUIDUtils with the
two proposed methods.
