Subject [jira] [Resolved] (CASSANDRA-8973) Remove or lift arbitrary hard limit on names of schema elements.
Date Mon, 16 Mar 2015 14:58:38 GMT

     [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CASSANDRA-8973?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:all-tabpanel
]

Jonathan Ellis resolved CASSANDRA-8973.
---------------------------------------
    Resolution: Won't Fix

Because the full sstable path name needs to be under 255, and limiting table names (which
are included in the path) helps stay under that limit.

> Remove or lift arbitrary hard limit on names of schema elements.

> ERROR: "Column family names shouldn't be more than 48 characters long"
> Why 48 ? Why not 64, 256, or 8 like in good old DOS filenames ?
> I have schema generated from XML, it makes names by concatenation for some kinds of column
families, used as manual indexes.
> I did all my best for shortening of column names, since they repeat every time in data
(is that true for CQL 3.0.0 ?), but I feel so sad about the necessity of adding extra shortening
logic to other places.
