Subject Re: Thrift proxy: Python WholeRowIterator behavior
Date Sat, 12 Apr 2014 18:49:36 GMT
Hi David,

Looks like you're just mis-using the Range here.

If you create a range that is ["row0", "row0"] as you denote below, that 
will only include Keys that have a rowId of "row0" with an empty colfam, 
colqual, etc. Since you want to use the WholeRowIterator, I can assume 
you want all columns in "row0". As such, ["row0", "row0\0") would be the 
best range to fetch all of the columns in that single row.
