Subject [jira] [Commented] (CASSANDRA-3031) Add 4 byte integer type
Date Sun, 04 Sep 2011 17:33:10 GMT

Eric Evans commented on CASSANDRA-3031:
---------------------------------------

bq. Perhaps we should make "int" default to varint, and add int4 and int8 types for when you
really want fixed width? Defaulting to fixed seems archaic.

How about deprecating int and introducing int4 and int8?

> Cassandra currently lacks support for 4byte fixed size integer data type. 
> Java API Hector and C libcassandra likes to serialize integers as 4 bytes in network
order. Problem is that you cant use cassandra-cli to manipulate stored rows. Compatibility
with other applications using api following cassandra integer encoding standard is problematic
too.
> Because adding new datatype/validator is fairly simple I recommend to add int4 data type.
Compatibility with hector is important because it is most used Java cassandra api and lot
of applications are using it.
> This problem was discussed several times already 
> http://comments.gmane.org/gmane.comp.db.hector.user/2125
> https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CASSANDRA-2585
> It would be nice to have compatibility with cassandra-cli and other applications without
rewriting hector apps.
