Subject [jira] [Commented] (CASSANDRA-6147) Allow Thrift opt-in to server-side timestamps
Date Fri, 07 Mar 2014 20:40:43 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CASSANDRA-6147?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13924307#comment-13924307

Edward Capriolo commented on CASSANDRA-6147:
--------------------------------------------

If your optional thing is a List of some type non-null has more meaning. If it is a primitive
like a long the client has no choice to supply it.

> Allow Thrift opt-in to server-side timestamps

> Thrift users are still forced to generate timestamps on the client side. Currently the
way the thrift bindings are generated users are forced to supply timestamps. There are two
solutions I see.
> * -1 as timestamp means "generate on the server side"
> This is a breaking change, for those using -1 as a timestamp (which should effectively
be no one.
> * Prepare yourself....
> Our thrift signatures are wrong, you can't overload methods in thrift
> thrift.get(byte [], byte[], ts) 
> should REALLY be changed to 
> GetRequest g =  new GetRequest()
> g.setName()
> g.setValue()
> g.setTs() ///optional 
> thrift. get( g )
> I know no one is going to want to make this change because thrift is quasi/dead but it
would allow us to evolve thrift in a meaningful way. We could simple add these new methods
under different names as well.
