Subject Re: About _id generation rule
Date Sun, 20 Feb 2011 19:48:35 GMT
Ha, I know the host uuids request trick.
But it doesn't solve my problem, I need to generate it offline.
Right now I use Java API to generate UUID and strip all "-" in it to
make it looks like an _id generated by CouchDB.
But I wonder if this approach is good enough, or there are some better
way to make my _id more appropriate.
Because I don't know if Couch plays any trick on the auto generated
_id that could make some different to the internal storage.
