Subject [jira] Commented: (CASSANDRA-2231) Add CompositeType comparer to the comparers provided in org.apache.cassandra.db.marshal
Date Wed, 02 Mar 2011 20:42:37 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CASSANDRA-2231?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13001615#comment-13001615
] 

Todd Nine commented on CASSANDRA-2231:
--------------------------------------

Enforcing all columns to be the same would break our indexing.  Each row key is a different
index, and the columns within that index are composed of different composite types.  If this
was enforced at the CF level, we would require a different CF for each index.  Is it possible
to allow both static and dynamic types by creating 2 composite index types?

> CompositeType is a custom comparer that makes it possible to create comparable composite
values out of the basic types that Cassandra currently supports, such as Long, UUID, etc.
 This is very useful in both the creation of custom inverted indexes using columns in a skinny
row, where each column name is a composite value, and also when using Cassandra's built-in
secondary index support, where it can be used to encode the values in the columns that Cassandra
indexes.  One scenario for the usage of these is documented here: http://www.anuff.com/2010/07/secondary-indexes-in-cassandra.html.
