Subject [jira] [Created] (CASSANDRA-7062) Extension of static columns for compound cluster keys
Date Mon, 21 Apr 2014 15:14:14 GMT
Constance Eustace created CASSANDRA-7062:

             Summary: Extension of static columns for compound cluster keys
                 Key: CASSANDRA-7062
             Project: Cassandra
          Issue Type: New Feature
            Reporter: Constance Eustace
            Priority: Minor

CASSANDRA-6561 implemented static columns for a given partition key.

What this is proposing for a compound cluster key is a static column that is static at intermediate
parts of a compound cluster key. This example shows a table modelling a moderately complex
EAV pattern  :

   entityID text,
   propertyName text,
   valueIndex text,
   entityName text static (entityID),
   propertyType text static (propertyName),
   propertyRelations List<text> static (propertyName),
   PRIMARY KEY (entityID, (propertyName,valueIndex)

So in this example has the following static columns:
- the entityName column behaves exactly as CASSANDRA-6561 details, so all cluster rows have
the same value
- the propertyName column is static with respect to the remaining parts of the cluster key
(that is, across all valueIndex values for a given propertyName)

Is this a relatively simple extension of the same mechanism in -6561, or is this a "whoa,
you have no idea what you are proposing"?
