Subject [jira] [Commented] (COUCHDB-1754) Implement ubjson support
Date Thu, 28 Mar 2013 13:15:15 GMT


Riyad Kalla commented on COUCHDB-1754:

There might be two interesting SOC projects in relation to UBJSON:

1. Supporting UBJSON over-the-wire (I assume that is what this ticket is for?)
2. Supporting UBJSON as the on-disk binary data format for the CouchDB DB file, allowing records
to be streamed directly off of disk with no serialization step. At least this was the original
intent of UBJSON.

I know there are likely a boat load of details around #2 that I am not aware of that might
make that an unlikely SOC project, but just wanted to throw it out there incase anyone was
interested. I've always been curious to see what kind of performance water-level Couch could
hit if we could remove the serialization/deserialization steps.

it take to support alternative data formats that are representable as JSON" structures.
