ballerina/uuid Ballerina library

1.7.0

Overview

This module provides APIs to generate and inspect UUIDs (Universally Unique Identifiers).

The UUIDs are generated based on the RFC 4122 standard. This module supports generating 4 versions of UUIDs.

Version 1

Generated using the MAC address of the computer and the time of generation.

Version 3

Cryptographic hashing and application-provided text strings are used to generate a UUID. MD5 hashing is used.

Version 4

Uses a pseudo-random number generator to generate the UUID. Every bit of the string is randomly generated.

Version 5

Similar to Version 3 but uses SHA-1 instead of MD5.

Other operations include validating a given UUID string and getting the version of a UUID string.

For information on the operations, which you can perform with the uuid module, see the below Functions.
