Emmanuel Bourg commented on RNG-16:

Actually every client will use the same random generator with the same 
parameters regardless of the language used. This ensures that all clients 
generate the same random events from the seed initially sent by the server. The 
generator is defined by the protocol, all clients know that they have to 
reproduce the behavior of the default GCC generator for example.

>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/RNG-16
>             Project: Commons RNG
>          Issue Type: Improvement
>            Reporter: Emmanuel Bourg
>            Priority: Minor
> This is a RFE for implementing linear congruential generators:
> https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Linear_congruential_generator
> This type of random generator is often used in language runtimes (Borland C, 
> GCC, Delphi, VB and even Java). Preconfigured generators using the same 
> parameters as these languages would be convenient for reproducing the same 
> number sequences in Java.
