The goal is actually getting the rows in the range of "start","end"

The order is not important at all.

But what I can see is, this does not seem to be possible at all using RP. Am I wrong?

You can't get rows back in order with RP.

You can start out with a start key and end key of '' (empty) and use the row count argument instead, if
your goal is paging the rows.  To get the next page, start from the last key you got in the
previous page.

If I'm not mistaken cassandra has been providing support for keyrange queries also on RP.

However when I try to define a keyrange such as, start: (key100, end: key200) I get an error like:
InvalidRequestException(why:start key's md5 sorts after end key's md5.  this is not allowed; you probably should not specify end key at all, under RandomPartitioner)

How can I utilize cassandra to get a keyrange in RP?
