------------------------------------------

             Summary: HBase Row key type should be configurable
                 Key: APEXMALHAR-2020
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/APEXMALHAR-2020
             Project: Apache Apex Malhar
          Issue Type: Improvement
            Reporter: Bhupesh Chawda
            Assignee: Bhupesh Chawda


In the current design of HBase input and output operators, the row key is hard-coded to be
of String type.

In case of numeric keys which are typecasted to String, incremental read is problematic. For
example, after reading key = 9, we may not be able to read any record with say, key = 8888,
when though numerically 8888 > 9, lexicographically "9" > "8888".

This is the case when data is being read from an HBase store where data is constantly coming
in.
