Detailed Description

SBCContainerUUID objects can hold Universally Unique IDs (UUIDs), which are used to identify classes and SAMSON Elements. In many cases, UUIDs are automatically generated thanks to the SAMSON Element generator.

UUIDs may be used e.g. to retrieve class proxies:

SBCClassProxy* classProxy = 0;
std::string className("ClassName");
std::string elementName("ElementName");
SBUUID elementUUID("0CE16BE8-8AA1-75C4-31A8-B3FA1CE93A94");
// retrieve a class proxy
classProxy = SAMSON::getProxy(className, elementName, elementUUID);

When necessary, SBRandom can be used to generate UUIDs :

SBRandom randomGenerator;
SBUUID randomUUID = randomGenerator.randUUID();

Short name: SBUUID
