UUIDs for GWT

[2009-01-07] gwt, dev, hack
(Ad, please don’t block)

UUIDs are useful for many purposes, one of them is generating unique URIs for semantic web applications. Alas, under GWT, java.util.UUID is server-side only, so I looked for a client-side alternative. After some googling, I've found a nice JavaScript implementation, translated it to Java and can now use it with GWT. I'm publishing it here (with the consent of the original author), in case others find it useful.
