Subject [jira] Created: (SANDBOX-151) [ID] VersionFourGenerator.nextIdentifier fails in secure mode

[ID] VersionFourGenerator.nextIdentifier fails in secure mode

         Key: SANDBOX-151
     Project: Commons Sandbox
        Type: Bug

 Environment: This JIRA environment is horrible: If I am not logged in I cannot report a bug
(may be OK), but I am then on a page which just does not tell me about authorization problems
but offers me some other projects where I could report!
    Reporter: Martin Heitz
    Priority: Critical

Generating secure ID only works on initialization, aftyerwards always the same ID is returned.

Fix the wrong if-blocks, then also the third ID will be unique...:
      private UUID nextUUID(boolean secure)
          byte[] raw = new byte[UUID_BYTE_LENGTH];
          if (secure) {
              //Initialize the secure random if null.
              if (secureRandom == null) {
                  try {
                      if (usePRNGPackage != null) {
                          secureRandom = SecureRandom.getInstance(usePRNG, usePRNGPackage);
                      } else {
                          secureRandom = SecureRandom.getInstance(usePRNG);
                  } catch (NoSuchAlgorithmException nsae) {
                      secure = false; //Fail back to default PRNG/Random
                  } catch (NoSuchProviderException nspe) {
                      secure = false; //Fail back to default PRNG/Random

              // fix by mattin
              if (secureRandom != null) {

          if (!secure) {
