GUID Algorithm

GUID Algorithm
  • GUID algorithm is able to generate primary key values on the basis of the underlying database provided identity column with String type.
  • This algorithm is represented in the form of a predefined class org.hibernate.id.GUIDGenerator and in the form of a short name like “guid”.
  • This algorithm is not requires any input parameters to generate primary values.
  • This algorithm is supported by the databases which are supporting string type id columns.
