Subject [jira] [Updated] (CASSANDRA-6438) Decide if we want to make user types keyspace scoped
Date Wed, 04 Dec 2013 09:40:40 GMT


Sylvain Lebresne updated CASSANDRA-6438:

    Attachment: 6438.txt

Attaching patch for this. I'll note that because type are now dependant on the keyspace, we
now have to parse types into "unprepared types" that needs to be prepared by providing the
currently logged keyspace later on. And because of type-casts, this means we now have to pass
the current keyspace to quite a bunch of methods. Not a big deal, those are trivial changes,
but that's why the patch impact so many files that don't seem initially related.

> Currently, user types are declared at the top level. I wonder however if we might not
want to make them scoped to a given keyspace. It was not done in the initial patch for simplicity
and because I was not sure of the advantages of doing so. However, if we ever want to use
user types in system tables, having them scoped by keyspace means we won't have to care about
the new type conflicting with another existing type.
> Besides, having user types be part of a keyspace would allow for slightly more fine grained
permissions on them.
