ClientUIDHandler.getNameFromUID() question

For one certain Entry, when I read it out of the space and call ClientUIDHandler.getNameFromUID(uid) on the UID of this Entry, the getNameFromUID() method simply returns the string "E". Why does this happen? What does this mean? I've never seen it do this before.

How do you get this? What is the UID you are getting
This is internal and should not be exposed to the user.

Also it seems that this mystery UID is 33 characters long instead of the 54 characters long that other UIDs are.

What would cause this?

I'm not sure what you mean. Any Entry written to the space can be read out and the UID can be looked at, if one follows the EntryInfo conventions for declaring an Entry with the following field:

transient private EntryInfo m_EntryInfo;

As described in: http://www.gigaspaces.com/wiki/displa...

We use the UID and ClientUIDHandler calls to map between the UID and an application-specific ID#. We are not using XAP/POJO features we are only using Entries.

I do not know why the UID is shorter for this one particular Entry that is written to the space. What does it mean when one gets an "E" back from ClientUIDHandler.getNameFromUID() ???

Here is the short UID: -1725725174^34^E^1235666898053^11

As I said, all other UIDs from all other Entries are much longer (20+ characters longer it seems).
