Subject [jira] [Resolved] (CASSANDRA-1205) Unify Partitioners and AbstractTypes
Date Thu, 16 Aug 2012 23:09:38 GMT


Jonathan Ellis resolved CASSANDRA-1205.

    Resolution: Later

Ordered(anything not bytes) is a super niche feature since that says your entire cluster has
that key type.  The main type that would be reasonable for would be strings, which happen
to compare well as bytes anyway.

Instead, we should probably have 2 partitioners: Random and Ordered, where the Ordered partitioner
requires an AbstractType to be specified, defaulting to BytesType.
> One solution [suggested by jbellis|]
is to have AbstractType generate a collation id (essentially, a Token) for a set of bytes.
> Looking forward, we should probably consider laying the groundwork to add native support
for compound row keys here as well.
