Subject [jira] Commented: (HADOOP-3315) New binary file format
Date Mon, 12 May 2008 18:44:57 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-3315?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12596159#action_12596159

Owen O'Malley commented on HADOOP-3315:

* getClosest should specify that it means closest after the given key
* row ids should be longs
* does the compression of the key index follow tfile.compressionCodec?
* should the ioffset and moffset (or my key, row, and meta offsets) be vints?
* I think the append method that takes an input stream should be:
void appendRaw(int keyLength, InputStream key, int valueLength, InputStream value) throws
* Most of the methods should have "throws IOException"
* It is useful to be able to get the key/value class names without the class. I'd replace
the getKeyClass and getValueClass with string equivalents:
String getKeyClassName();
String getValueClassName();
* I assume that seekToKey returns false, if the key does not exist, but the file pointer may
have moved.

> SequenceFile's block compression format is too complex and requires 4 codecs to compress
or decompress. It would be good to have a file format that only needs
