Subject [jira] Commented: (COUCHDB-1071) Integer UUIDS (1, 2, 3, ...)
Date Tue, 22 Feb 2011 08:09:38 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/COUCHDB-1071?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12997679#comment-12997679

Sebastian Cohnen commented on COUCHDB-1071:
-------------------------------------------

The whole point of an universally unique identifier (UUID) is, that it is universally unique,
even across servers. Sequential IDs will break, if you have more than one server. If you have
concurrent writers, this will also cause problems...

If you need sequential IDs, you can just create them by yourself but I highly doubt that this
kind of sequential integer IDs make sense for CouchDB.
