Hi Chihiro, et.al.,
Thanks for taking a look at this issue, however...
There has been a long history of concerns about breaking existing
that depend on the loose parsing of UUIDs. Throwing an exception where
it did not
previously is an incompatible change.
The crucial concern about performance parsing conforming strings has
been addressed by:
8196334 Optimize UUID#fromString
I propose to close these as WILL-NOT-FIX: and hope that the next several
times it gets reported
they will be closed as duplicates.
8216407 <https://bugs.openjdk.java.net/browse/JDK-8216407> java.util.UUID.fromString accepts input that does not match expected format
accepts wrong placements of the dashes
Any other suggestions welcome.
