a surrogate key (a key generated from a sequence is independent of any logic or rules related to the row it identifies) and is by definition unique.

a composite key is used with natural keys or to identify a row in a fact table.

what is it you are trying to make unique with a composite key?
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
