Subject [jira] [Commented] (CASSANDRA-7523) add date and time types
Date Mon, 22 Sep 2014 18:48:34 GMT


Benedict commented on CASSANDRA-7523:

To clarify, all we are doing is defining dates as an unsigned integer, with the epoch being
the _minimum_ representable date as opposed to the _middle_. This means any language without
unsigned integer support has to do some minor fiddling, but this is not particularly obtuse
for writing a network client, and I wouldn't call it foisting internal treament of dates upon
the drivers in any unreasonable way.

for discussion on timestamp-with-time-zone.  but date/time should be pretty easy to add.)
