Subject CQL 3.0 Violates standard UUID FORMAT
Date Fri, 29 Jun 2012 08:16:56 GMT
According to the CQL 3.0 specification :

 ____A UUID constant is defined by hex{8}-hex{4}-hex{4}-hex{12} where hex is an hexadecimal
character, e.g. [0-9a-fA-F]and {4} is the number of such characters. ____

Cassandra UUID representation  = 28 characters  ,  112 bits  , 14 bytes

But...

A UUID is a ____ 16-byte (128-bit)  ____ number. In its canonical form, a UUID is represented
by 32 hexadecimal digits, displayed in five groups separated by hyphens, in the form 8-4-4-4-12
for a _____ total of 36 characters  _______ (32 digits and four hyphens). 


Standard UUID representation =  36 characters  , 128 bits , 16 bytes
