Subject Re: Adding Long type rows to a CF containing Integer(32) type row keys, without overlapping ?
Date Mon, 26 Mar 2012 17:38:44 GMT
I need to use the range beyond the integer32 type range,  so I am using
Long to write those keys. I am afraid if this might lead to collisions with
the previously  stored integer keys in the same CF even if I leave out the
int32 type range.
