Subject [jira] Commented: (CASSANDRA-1282) NumericType: comparator for integers of fixed and arbitrary length
Date Tue, 20 Jul 2010 17:35:55 GMT


Folke Behrens commented on CASSANDRA-1282:

Very true. By the way, BytesType needs to be fixed, too. CASSANDRA-242 dropped the initial
length == 0 check and now BytesType allows null values.

> Patch introduces a new column comparator: NumericType. It can compare signed integer
values of fixed (int, long) and arbitrary length (BigInteger). Both can be mixed. Leading
zero bytes or 0xFF bytes will be ignored and can safely be stripped on compaction.
> The trivial version uses "new BigInteger(byte[]).compareTo(new BigInteger(byte[]))" but
it's slower and fills up memory.
> The faster version operates completely on stack and should even obsolete LongType.
