Change @GraphQLID to only work on strings

See original GitHub issue

Library Version 1.0.0-RC5

Describe the issue Our current implementation allows for multiple types to be a ID:

  • String, Int, Long or UUID

Expected behavior According the to GraphQL spec the ID scalar should always serialize to a String

Do we need to change this behaviour?

If we only had to support strings we could create a new simple class ID which can be used instead to be more explicit in the Kotlin code about the resulting schema which means we could remove this annotation

Example error that can occur with input if an invalid UUID is given
