Subject [jira] Created: (CASSANDRA-2348) Allow periods in secondary index column names
Date Thu, 17 Mar 2011 13:22:29 GMT
Allow periods in secondary index column names
---------------------------------------------

                 Key: CASSANDRA-2348
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CASSANDRA-2348
             Project: Cassandra
          Issue Type: Wish
          Components: API
            Reporter: David Semeria
            Priority: Minor


Premise: it is natural to map JSON objects to column names using periods to denote the object
hierarchy.

For example {food:{fruit;{a:apples,b:bananas,c:cherries}}}
Would map to the following CF names: food.fruit.a, food.fruit.b, food.fruit.c

However, secondary index names cannot contain periods which means workarounds (ie denormalization)
must be used to index such columns.

It would be nice if this restriction could be removed.
