If I have to generate a unique no. which is forming part of a filename thereby imposing a limitation that it should not be too long. Please suggest me a best method to go about doing the same.

Not sure if this is the best way to do this, but the method I've always used is something like:

String reportName = "Report_" + fmtDate.formatDate(new java.util.Date(), "dd.MM.yyyy_HH.mm") + reportExtension;

Of course by including milliseconds too it'll be more unique (you know what I mean).
