Re: how to generate GUID?

Use the combination of device pin (can be obtained via DeviceInfo class) and

 

net.rim.device.api.synchronization.UIDGenerator class.

Re: how to generate GUID?

Hi

 

      // To get the UUID of Device.
        public static String getUUID()
        {          
                int deviceID = DeviceInfo.getDeviceId();
                UUID u = new UUID(deviceID);
                String uuid= u.toString();

                return uuid
                +"-"+Integer.toString(UIDGenerator.getUID()).substring(4,8)
                +"-"+Integer.toString(UIDGenerator.getUID()).substring(4,8)
                +"-"+Integer.toString(UIDGenerator.getUID()).substring(3,7)
                +"-"+Long.toString(System.currentTimeMillis()).substring(0,12); 
        }

Hi,

You can use Guid Generator for generate GUIDs.:Punk:
