Subject [jira] [Commented] (CASSANDRA-3281) Add an AbstractType anytype which stores meta data on a per column basis
Date Tue, 27 Mar 2012 22:38:29 GMT


Ben McCann commented on CASSANDRA-3281:

I'm a little foggy on whether I was able to do things like index based on the value of a field
contained within a protobuf.  What I'm definitely missing now is basically the ability to
set the validation_class for a column to ThriftType and then run a CQL query that can scan
the table, deserialize the column, and select thrift structs where a certain field has a certain
value.  Super nice for debugging, running nightly reports, etc.

. The biggest cases were needing to support null and '' as keys, column names, and column
values, however I also think the technique used to serialize Java Objects as JSON but compare
as a Java object is novel. 
> Side node: (The AbstractType interface has changed multiple times between 0.6.X, 0.7.X,
and 1.0.0-beta. I hope it stabilizes! ) 
> If people would like AnyType (or parts of it ) incorporated into Cassandra that would
be great. I am willing to tweak change it based on other peoples ideas.
