      public static UUID getUUID(Object input)
      Convenient utility to convert an object to a UUID. If the input is
      • null: returns null
      • a UUID: returns the input unchanged
      • a String formatted as a UUID: returns the result of UUID.fromString(String)
      • any other String: returns UUID.nameUUIDFromBytes(byte[]) with bytes generated from the input
      • a primitive or primitive wrapper: converts to a String ans then uses the previous conversion method
      • Serializable: returns the UUID.nameUUIDFromBytes(byte[]) with the serialized bytes of the input
      If none of the above applies there will be an exception trying to serialize.
