Choosing between the TimeUUIDType and LexicalUUIDType is a pain, particularly when using auto-mapping inside a high-level Cassandra client like Hector. The TimeUUIDType will fail when it gets a UUID that isn't version 1 (time-based) and the LexicalUUIDType isn't doesn't really lexically compare UUIDs. See: http://bugs.sun.com/bugdatabase/view_bug.do?bug_id=7025832 http://www.anuff.com/2011/04/javautiluuidcompareto-considered-harmful.html This comparator will sort UUIDs first by their version number, then, if time-based, using the UUID timestamp component, and if not time-based, performing a correct lexical compare as specified by RFC 4122. This has been accepted as a patch to the Cassandra project for version 0.8: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CASSANDRA-2233 The version on GitHub will work with Cassandra 0.7.
