Subject [jira] [Commented] (HBASE-5612) Data types for HBase values
Date Wed, 21 Mar 2012 19:17:40 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-5612?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13234898#comment-13234898

Mikhail Bautin commented on HBASE-5612:
---------------------------------------

@Nicolas: it is not totally clear to me what you mean by a struct schema. I was discussing
data block encoding and its benefits when applied to our applications with Liyin, and the
simple example of variable-length integer encoding for counters came up. We can take it in
many different directions, and I just want to open a discussion to gauge interest.

> In many real-life applications all values in a certain column family are of a certain
data type, e.g. 64-bit integer. We could specify that in the column descriptor and enable
data type-specific compression such as variable-length integer encoding.
