Your IPartitioner implementation decides how the row keys are sorted: see
. You need to be using one of the OrderPreservingPartitioners if you'd like a reasonable order
for the keys.

Subject: key is sorted?

I have a super column family for "topic", key being the name of the topic.
<ColumnFamily Name="Topic" CompareWith="UTF8Type" ColumnType="Super"
CompareSubcolumnsWith="BytesType" />
When I retrieve the rows, the rows are not sorted by the key. Is the row key
sorted in cassandra by default?
