Subject [jira] Created: (CASSANDRA-240) Remove time-sorted columns
Date Thu, 18 Jun 2009 18:36:07 GMT
Remove time-sorted columns

                 Key: CASSANDRA-240
             Project: Cassandra
          Issue Type: Improvement
            Reporter: Jonathan Ellis

Time-sorted columns suck for the reasons outlined in CASSANDRA-226, and because they split
the API (some ops like get_columns_since only work efficiently on time-sorted; everything
else only works efficiently on name-sorted).

The solution is to make everything "name" sorted but with byte[] names and pluggable comparators
you can emulate time-sorted columns but without the ugliness.
