Constructor Detail

UID

public UID()
Creates a pure identifier that is unique with respect to the host on which it is generated. This UID is unique under the following conditions: a) the machine takes more than one second to reboot, and b) the machine's clock is never set backward. In order to construct a UID that is globally unique, simply pair a UID with an InetAddress.
Since:
JDK1.1

UID

public UID(short num)
Creates a "well-known" ID. There are 2^16 -1 such possible well-known ids. An id generated via this constructor will not clash with any id generated via the default UID constructor which will generates a genuinely unique identifier with respect to this host.
Parameters:
num - well known ID number
Since:
JDK1.1
Method Detail

hashCode

public int hashCode()
Returns a hashcode for the UID. Two UIDs will have the same hashcode if they are equal with respect to their content.
Overrides:
hashCode in class Object
Returns:
the hashcode
Since:
JDK1.1
See Also:
Hashtable

equals

public boolean equals(Object obj)
Compares two UIDs for content equality.
Overrides:
equals in class Object
Parameters:
obj - the Object to compare with
Returns:
true if these Objects are equal; false otherwise.
Since:
JDK1.1
See Also:
Hashtable

toString

public String toString()
Returns the string representation of the UID.
Overrides:
toString in class Object
Since:
JDK1.1

write

public void write(DataOutput out)
           throws IOException
Write the UID to output stream, out.
Parameters:
out - the output stream to which the UID is written
Throws:
IOException - if writing the UID to the stream fails.
Since:
JDK1.1

read

public static UID read(DataInput in)
                throws IOException
Reads the UID from the input stream.
Parameters:
in - the input stream
Returns:
the UID
Throws:
IOException - if uid could not be read (due to stream failure or malformed UID)
Since:
JDK1.1
