UUID nameUUIDFromBytes() Method in Java with Examples

The nameUUIDFromBytes() method of UUID class in Java is generally used to retrieve a third type name based UUID based on the specified byte array. This is used as a static factory method.

Syntax:

public static UUID nameUUIDFromBytes(byte[] byte_name)

Parameters: This method accepts a parameter byte_name which refers to the byte array that is used to construct a UUID.



Return Value: This method returns an UUID instance generated from a specified array.

        // Printing the byte[]
        System.out.println("Specified byte array: "
                           + Arrays.toString(byte_name));
  
        // Creating an UUID from byte
        UUID UU_ID
            = UUID
                  .nameUUIDFromBytes(byte_name);
  
        // Displaying the UUID value
        System.out.println("UUID value from byte: "
                           + UU_ID);
    }
}
