Subject [jira] Commented: (CASSANDRA-242) Implement method to "evenly" split a Range
Date Mon, 24 Aug 2009 19:19:59 GMT


Stu Hood commented on CASSANDRA-242:

Hmm, I actually thought you were joking. I'll split it.

As I mentioned in
I don't see how this ticket is at all related to the decoratedKey refactor.

> 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.
