Program: How to generate same random number sequence everytime?


Description:

Some times we need to generate same random number sequence everytime we call the sequence generator method on every call. We cannot achieve this if we use simple Random() class constructor. We need to pass seed to the Random() constructor to generate same random sequence. The below example, calls the generateSequence() method three times, and generates the same random sequence.


Code:
package com.java2novice.random;

import java.util.Random;

public class MySameSequenceWithRange {

	public void generateSequence(){
		Random rnd = new Random(40);
		for(int i=0;i<5;i++){
			System.out.println(rnd.nextInt(100));
		}
	}
	
	public static void main(String a[]){
		MySameSequenceWithRange mss = new MySameSequenceWithRange();
		mss.generateSequence();
		System.out.println("====================");
		mss.generateSequence();
		System.out.println("====================");
		mss.generateSequence();
	}
}

Output:

What is transient variable?
Transient variables cannot be serialized. During serialization process, transient variable states will not be serialized. State of the value will be always defaulted after deserialization.
