Subject [jira] [Commented] (HBASE-4256) Intra-row scanning (part deux)
Date Mon, 14 Nov 2011 20:28:51 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-4256?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13149878#comment-13149878

Dave Revell commented on HBASE-4256:

I've started work on this and I'm having trouble deciding on the best interface. I can see
a couple ways that it might work:

1. Add Scan.setStartQualifier() and Scan.setEndQualifier(). What if the user also uses addColumn(),
would we fetch those columns also?

2. Add Scan.addColumnRange(byte[] start, byte[] end). Could the user specify multiple (possibly
overlapping) ranges? Again, would this conflict with addColumn()?

Any input would be appreciated.

> Dave Revell was asking on IRC today if there's a way to scan ranges of *qualifiers* within
a row. That is, to be able to specify a *start qualifier* and an *end qualifier* so that the
Get or Scan seeks directly to the first qualifier and stops at some point which can be predeterminate
by a qualifier or simply a batch configuration (already exists).
> This is particularly useful for large rows with time-based qualifiers.
> Dave also mentioned that another popular database has such a feature that they call "column
