System Class for UUIDs

The methods of the class CL_SYSTEM_UUID create UUIDs in different formats, such as 16-character byte-likeUUIDs, 22-character character-like UUIDs with uppercase and lowercase letters, and 32-character character-like UUIDs in hexadecimal. They also make it possible to convert the UUIDs from one type to another.
