NAME ^

Workflow::Persister::UUID - Persister to generate Universally Unique Identifiers

VERSION ^

This documentation describes version 1.03 of this package

SYNOPSIS ^

 <persister
     name="MyPersister"
     use_uuid="yes"
 ...

DESCRIPTION ^

Implementation for any persister to generate a UUID/GUID ID string. The resulting string is 36 characters long and, according to the implementation docs, "is guaranteed to be different from all other UUIDs/GUIDs generated until 3400 CE."

This uses the Data::UUID module to generate the UUID string, so look there if you are curious about the algorithm, efficiency, etc.

METHODS

new

Instantiates a Workflow::Persister::UUID object, which is actually an encapsulation of Data::UUID.

pre_fetch_id

"pre_fetch_id" can then be used to generate/retrieve a unique ID, generated by Data::UUID.

post_fetch_id

This method is unimplemented at this time, please see the TODO.
