Subject [jira] [Created] (OPENJPA-2055) IPv6 addresses not supported in UUIDGenerator
Date Fri, 30 Sep 2011 18:27:45 GMT
IPv6 addresses not supported in UUIDGenerator

                 Key: OPENJPA-2055
             Project: OpenJPA
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: jdbc
    Affects Versions: 2.1.0
            Reporter: Heath Thomann
            Assignee: Heath Thomann
            Priority: Minor

UUIDGenerator class uses an IPv4 address as part of its seed when generating a UUID.  That
is, the UUIDGenerator makes a call to InteAddress 'getAddress' method to get the address and
assumes it returns a byte array of size 4 (the size of an IPv4 address).  However, in an environment
which uses IPv6, 'getAddress' can return a byte array of length 16.  UUIDGenerator needs to
be updated to account for an IPv6 address.
