Subject [jira] [Created] (CASSANDRA-13527) Protocol [short] is used as unsigned and signed value
Date Fri, 12 May 2017 09:27:04 GMT
Jorge Bay created CASSANDRA-13527:
-------------------------------------

             Summary: Protocol [short] is used as unsigned and signed value
                 Key: CASSANDRA-13527
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CASSANDRA-13527
             Project: Cassandra
          Issue Type: Bug
            Reporter: Jorge Bay


The protocol specification describes {{\[short\]}} as unsigned int16, but then on the section
{{2.3. stream}} it describes it like a signed int16, being {{0x7fff}} the maximum positive
value.

Additionally, {{\[int\]}} and {{\[long\]}} are signed, making the identifier {{\[short\]}}
somewhat confusing.

For disambiguation, it would be nice to introduce {{\[ushort\]}} or {{\[unsigned short\]}}
(replacing most entries) and leave {{\[short\]}} as signed value, mainly for stream ids.
