ObjectDB ObjectDB

auto-generated uuid fields


Hello, we're porting a JDO application to ObjectDB which uses uuid-hex generated values. However the page on generated values in your JPA tutorial only mentions numeric generated values, and when we try to use it the error message seems to imply that auto-generating strings isn't supported.

Could you confirm whether this is the case? If so it seems an odd omission, given that it's part of both the JPA and JDO standards (JPA Generator.UUID_HEX and JDO value-strategy="uuid-hex") and that the Java language itself supports it (java.util.UUID).


This is currently not supported. Discussion was moved to a new feature request in the issue tracking.
