The unique id service provides a convinient way to generate unique ids for identifing / tracking data in an application. This implementation relies on database to access and retrieve next block of values for a sequence. Hence it can be used with any project which uses java, jdbc and a database.

The implementation also takes care of generating unique identifiers for the same sequence across all the instances in a cluster.

This service can be used in scenarios which requires a unique identification for data. e.g. generating invoice numbers for orders.
