Subject Re: range get over subcolumns on supercolumn family
Date Mon, 26 Apr 2010 18:56:13 GMT
Just found the way...
keyRange start and end key will be the same and instead of specifying the
count and start on KeyRange it has to be specified on SliceRange and then
keySlices will come with a single key and a list of columns...
