hi guys. can anyone help me in getting unique client ids. i 'am using hashcode to generate it. but if i start two clients on the same JVM then the clientID remains same. well that doesnot create a problem in standalone mode. but for n/w mode this will be a big problem. even though it is a ridiculous thought of having two clinets running n/w access from same system. point to note is that i'am generating unique ids on the client( i hope i'am doing proper)
hi, In my design, i have a class names IDGenerator and only has one static method: generateId() and a static int variable. whenever this method is called, it will return a unique "id". let this class work in your server in which u want a unique id return to the client. Hope it helps! Xiaoma Wang
