Subject [jira] [Commented] (CASSANDRA-3231) CQL does not throw an error when invalid hex is supplied
Date Tue, 27 Sep 2011 15:20:11 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CASSANDRA-3231?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13115565#comment-13115565
] 

Pavel Yaskevich commented on CASSANDRA-3231:
--------------------------------------------

do you want to throw MarshalException directly from FBUtilities.hexToBytes to remove NumberFormatException
from BytesType.fromString(String)?

> As reported on irc, if you try to create an index on a CF with a default comparator of
BytesType, but you supply invalid hex, weird things happen.  Namely if you try to create one
on 'category' you instead get one on '\xca\xfe\xff\xff', which is 4 bytes that appears to
coincide with attempting to interpret 'ca', 'te', 'go', 'ry' as hex.
