Interface IDMaker

  • All Known Implementing Classes:
    IDMaker.ByName, IDMaker.ByURN

    public interface IDMaker
    Interface for objects that define how to make an ID for a sequence.

    Nine times out of ten, you will use one of HashSequenceDB.byURN or HashSequenceDB.byName, but once in a blue-moon, you will want some other systematic way of retrieveing Sequences. This interface is here to allow you to plug in this functionality if you need it.
