Subject [jira] [Commented] (CASSANDRA-4245) Provide a UT8Type (case insensitive) comparator
Date Tue, 21 Aug 2012 13:09:38 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CASSANDRA-4245?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13438694#comment-13438694
] 

André Cruz commented on CASSANDRA-4245:
---------------------------------------

I'm also interested in a UTF-8 comparator that orders columns alphabetically. In fact, I was
expecting this to be the default behaviour in Cassandra until it bit me. For example, with
3 columns: André, Zeus and Ándré.

I was expecting:
André
Ándré
Zeus

The result was:
André
Zeus
Ándré

This is what's being discussed in this issue, right?

> It is a common use case to use a bunch of entity names as column names & then use
the row as a search index, using search by range. For such use cases & others, it is useful
to have a UTF8 comparator that provides case insensitive ordering of columns.
