UUID gefällig?

Wenn jemand mal Bedarf an UUIDs hat und gerade keinen Generator zur Hand hat bzw. etwas mehr über das Thema wissen will, dann ist www.uuidgenerator.com ein Anlaufpunkt, um sich zumindest einiger UUIDs zu bemächtigen.

A Universally Unique Identifier is an identifier standard used in software construction, standardized by the Open Software Foundation (OSF) as part of the Distributed Computing Environment (DCE). The intent of UUIDs is to enable distributed systems to uniquely identify information without significant central coordination.

Thus, anyone can create a UUID and use it to identify something with reasonable confidence that the identifier will never be unintentionally used by anyone for anything else. Information labelled with UUIDs can therefore be later combined into a single database without needing to resolve name conflicts.
