Subject [jira] Commented: (CASSANDRA-953) Expose byte[] row keys in client APIs
Date Mon, 05 Apr 2010 15:40:27 GMT


Jonathan Ellis commented on CASSANDRA-953:

We've been telling people for a long time that 0.7 is going to break clients for exactly this
reason.  So, go ahead and break them. :)

> Once 767 lands, row keys will be stored as bytes internally, and the partitioner will
decide whether to interpret the bytes. We can then expose the byte[] keys to client APIs.
> One key issue to settle is whether we should support both keys and bytes for the 0.7
release, or if we should make 0.7 a fully breaking release. The main problem with supporting
both key types is that I don't think Thrift supports method overloading, so all of the methods
would need to change names.
