Subject [jira] [Commented] (CB-49) UUID replacement
Date Mon, 18 Jun 2012 23:38:42 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CB-49?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13396362#comment-13396362

Shazron Abdullah commented on CB-49:
------------------------------------

No FileEntry.setMetadata is a no-op for the other implementations, and may be implemented.
Adding this is useless for the other implementations.

With iOS 6 beta out - we will be going with Apple's recommendation in UIDevice as stated in
their docs (need Apple Dev login):
https://developer.apple.com/library/prerelease/ios/#documentation/UIKit/Reference/UIDevice_Class/DeprecationAppendix/AppendixADeprecatedAPI.html#//apple_ref/occ/instp/UIDevice/uniqueIdentifier

Basically - we will just create a new UUID per app instance like our docs mentioned.

> As you might have read iOS 5 will remove the UDID (http://techcrunch.com/2011/08/19/apple-ios-5-phasing-out-udid/).
> This is an excellent alternative and it would be nice if you would implement something
along these lines to keep the functionality. The idea of hashing together with the bundle
id is great, because it makes it impossible to track across applications, which is what apple
wanted to fix (although it can be circumvented that would only anger them, and tracking across
apps isn't required for most apps anyway).
