Sun StorageTek 5800 System Client API Reference Manual


Instances of ObjectIdentifier uniquely represent objects in a 5800 system store. The 5800 system creates these instances when objects are stored and are returned to the client as part of the store result.ObjectIdentifier instances can be stored outside of the 5800 system and used later for retrieving objects. External storage can be accomplished using an identifier's string representation by invoking the toString method. An instance of ObjectIdentifier can be reconstituted using the constructor that takes String as an argument.
