Subject [jira] Commented: (CASSANDRA-1898) json2sstable should support streaming
Date Mon, 24 Jan 2011 16:15:44 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CASSANDRA-1898?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12985778#action_12985778
] 

Nick Bailey commented on CASSANDRA-1898:
----------------------------------------

It certainly shouldn't error. I think the fix could be with with either export or import though.
 

Is having a comma in an object with no attribute like that technically valid json?  If so
I would say json2sstable should handle that case and skip it. If not it might be easier to
just fix sstable2json to not output that comma.

Or maybe they should both be fixed.

> json2sstable loads the entire json file into memory. This is so it can sort the file
before creating an sstable. If the file was created using sstable2json and the partitioner
isn't changing, this isn't necessary.  For very large files this means json2sstable requires
a huge amount of memory.
> There should be an option to stream the file. A simple check for out of order keys will
prevent writing bad sstables.
> This should be possible with the SAX style parser available in our current json library.
