Subject [jira] Created: (CASSANDRA-1205) Unify Partitioners and AbstractTypes
Date Thu, 17 Jun 2010 23:13:22 GMT
Unify Partitioners and AbstractTypes

                 Key: CASSANDRA-1205
             Project: Cassandra
          Issue Type: Improvement
            Reporter: Stu Hood
             Fix For: 0.8

There is no good reason for Partitioners to have different semantics than AbstractTypes. Instead,
we should probably have 2 partitioners: Random and Ordered, where the Ordered partitioner
requires an AbstractType to be specified, defaulting to BytesType.

One solution [suggested by jbellis|]
is to have AbstractType generate a collation id (essentially, a Token) for a set of bytes.

Looking forward, we should probably consider laying the groundwork to add native support for
compound row keys here as well.
