>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-3293
>             Project: HBase
>          Issue Type: Bug

> When inserting a value into HBase that has a negative timestamp, such as -1, HBase inserts
that value without an exception or any kind of other warning if we use the Java API. The value
is written to a region and the webinterface of the regionservers shows that there is data
in them. 
> However: neither a Scan nor a Get nor any other operation via MapReduce in the Shell
or via Java can read that specific value out.
> There would be 2 different fixes in my opinion:
> 1. simply accept the negative timestamps consequently in read and write operations
> 2. if negative timestamps cannot be used, throw an exception when someone tries to insert
an invalid timestamp
