Subject [jira] Commented: (CASSANDRA-242) Implement method to "evenly" split a Range
Date Wed, 26 Aug 2009 16:55:59 GMT


Jonathan Ellis commented on CASSANDRA-242:

> Patch 1: let's use an annotation instead of special interface to indicate order-preserving-ness

Or even simpler just have a boolean isOrdered method in IPartitioner.

> Implement method to "evenly" split a Range

> Two tickets currently depend on being able to deterministically split a Range object
into two "even" Ranges.
> This can be accomplished with RandomPartitioner/BigIntegerToken by taking the average
of the tokens, but the OrderPreservingPartitioner/StringToken implementation uses a Java Collator
to define the sort order of Tokens, which means that they are not necessarily sorted in byte/char
> Collator.getCollationKey(String).toByteArray() gets you a sortable byte array, but there
is no publicly accessible API for converting a similar byte array back into a String.
