Subject [jira] [Commented] (ACCUMULO-803) Add Reverse Logical Time as a Time Type
Date Fri, 26 Oct 2012 20:43:12 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/ACCUMULO-803?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13485186#comment-13485186

David Medinets commented on ACCUMULO-803:
-----------------------------------------

I feel mucking with timestamps is asking for trouble. I'd rather see an effort to make the
Key semantics changeable in a controlled fashion using a plug-in architecture. Then changes
to support FIFO or other sorting mechanisms would use a well-defined API. Changes (and bugs)
for each mechanism would be isolated.

> In a context where we are doing aggregation/combination of multiple values for a given
key it may be useful to iterate over the values associated with that key in the order in which
the mutations were applied (FIFO), instead of the FILO order that seems to occur when using
{{TimeType.LOGICAL}}. 
> I encountered when implemeting a checkAndPut operation that would ensure that the previous
value was expected before putting a new value. In this case, if the previous value was not
as expected, the mutation would be ignored. 
> Perhaps it is useful in a general case?
