I was playing around with the UUIDKeyGeneratorFactory in an EJB 3 application, to generate a primary key.  Hibernate actually supports its own annotations for this (non-JPA standard), but I was wondering about using the KeyGeneratorFactory directly as an alternative.  I can definitely just create an IntialContext, and lookup "UUIDKeyGeneratorFactory", and that works as expected, and that's been in the application server since 3.2.x.
Is there a way to use EJB 3 @Resource annotation to inject the UUIDKeyGeneratorFactory.  I tried it in the code, but it didn't work, but maybe I missed something, or maybe the @Resource annotation isn't generalized to lookup anything in JNDI.
Anyway, if someone could shed some light on the subject that would be helpful.
