Subject [jira] [Commented] (CASSANDRA-8951) Add smallint (and possibly byte) type
Date Tue, 12 May 2015 09:21:01 GMT


Benjamin Lerer commented on CASSANDRA-8951:

The cassandra patch is here: [cassandra patch |]
The python driver patch is here: [python patch |]

I followed the way the existing types were done. I found that implementing them non-emptiable
while everything else is emptiable is too confusing in my opinion.

> We have {{int}} and {{bigint}}, but we don't have a {{smallint}} (2 bytes). I see no
reason not to add it. And while we're at it, it doesn't cost much to add a {{byte}} type either.
