GUID conversion and assigning to a node element

Hi All,

I have a GUID from my back end which I want to hard code in my webdynpro application. This GUID will later be transferred back to the back end. Do anyone has any sample code to assign the guid to a node element of type binary. From the back end system, I have the GUID of type RAW "41FAF49741FE0A1DE10000000A114B54". When the model is imported into the web dynpro application, the GUID type is taken as binary. I want to set this value "41FAF49741FE0A1DE10000000A114B54" to my node. Can anyone help me with this?

Thanks for your help.

Best Regards,

    Hi Hemanth

    I assume the binary attribute will be a byte array.

    You can create a string using the string constructor that takes in the byte array and there are string methods that give back the byte array. If wdContext.currentSomeElement().getBin() is a binary attribute then

    //converted byte array to string
    String strBinary = new String(wdContext.currentSomeElement().getBin());
    //converted string to byte array 
    byte b[] = strBinary.getBytes();

      Hi Hermanth,

      for simply hardcoding, you could do something like this:

      final byte[] hardcodedGUID = new byte[] { 
        0x41, 0xFA, 0xF4, 0x97, 
        0x41, 0xFE, 0x0A, 0x1D, 
        0xE1, 0x00, 0x00, 0x00, 
        0x0A, 0x11, 0x4B, 0x54

      Hope that helps.
