    Static field volatile

    gienasek Newbie


      I was under an obligation do session bean which method generate
      unique identifier ( timestamp (yyyymmddhhmmss) + counter).
      I store last value identifier in database and use strict locking condition (db) -
      this way I'm sure that it is unique.

      I'm looking for more efficient way for solve this problem.
      I was thinking about store last value in bean static variable with kev word volatile. I know that EJB specyfication is not favourable for using threads features. Is possible using volatile word for synchronize access to static variable ?

      thank in advance
