Subject [jira] [Created] (CASSANDRA-10358) Allow CQLSSTableWriter.Builder to use custom AbstractSSTableSimpleWriter

Andre Turgeon created CASSANDRA-10358:

             Summary: Allow CQLSSTableWriter.Builder to use custom AbstractSSTableSimpleWriter

                 Key: CASSANDRA-10358
             Project: Cassandra
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: Core
            Reporter: Andre Turgeon
            Priority: Minor
             Fix For: 2.0.x
         Attachments: patch.txt

I've created a patch for your consideration. 

This change to CQLSSTableWriter allows for a custom AbstractSSTableSimpleWriter to be specified.

I needed this for a bulkload process I wrote. I believe the change would be beneficial for
other people as well. 

Below are the reasons I needed a custom implementation of AbstractSSTableSimpleWriter:

1) The available implementations of AbstractSSTableSimpleWriter do not provide a way to specify
the filename (or rather revision) of the sstable. I needed to control the name because my
bulkload process write sstables in parallel (on multiple machines) and I wish to avoid name

2) I discovered a problem with SSTableSimpleUnsortedWriter where it creates invalid level-compaction-style
sstables; It allows a partition to span 2 sstables which violates the "no overlap of token
ranges" constraint of level compaction.
