Subject [jira] Created: (COUCHDB-956) Return all _seq values as strings not integers
Date Thu, 18 Nov 2010 14:35:14 GMT
Return all _seq values as strings not integers
----------------------------------------------

                 Key: COUCHDB-956
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/COUCHDB-956
             Project: CouchDB
          Issue Type: Improvement
            Reporter: Robert Newson


Some fields are returned as strings in db_info and other places to protect against numeric
overflow;

{"db_name":"db","doc_count":0,"doc_del_count":0,"update_seq":0,"purge_seq":0,"compact_running":false,"disk_size":79,"instance_start_time":"1290088043619158","disk_format_version":5,"committed_update_seq":0}

here, instance_start_time is protected but, more critically, update_seq is not.

If update_seq were to be wrapped due to precision issues, what breaks?
