Subject [jira] [Commented] (HBASE-6907) KeyValue equals and compareTo methods should match
Date Fri, 18 Jan 2013 23:14:12 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-6907?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13557730#comment-13557730

stack commented on HBASE-6907:
------------------------------

+1

I tried to reason what would happen if we went in the other direction, ignoring mvcc and I
could only see issues -- possibly returning older Cells.

If it happens we need to compare minus mvcc, lets make a comparator that does that for those
cases.  I think this more strict equality check is what we want, or at least, lets try it.

> KeyValue.KVComparator includes the memstoreTS when comparing, however the KeyValue.equals()
method ignores the memstoreTS.
> The Comparator interface has always specified that comparator return 0 when equals would
return true and vice versa.  Obeying that rule has been sort of optional in the past, but
Java 7 introduces a new default collection sorting algorithm called Tim Sort which relies
on that behavior.  http://bugs.sun.com/view_bug.do?bug_id=6804124
> Possible problem spots:
> * there's a Collections.sort(KeyValues) in RedundantKVGenerator.generateTestKeyValues(..)
> * TestColumnSeeking compares two collections of KeyValues using the containsAll method.
 It is intentionally ignoring memstoreTS, so will need an alternative method for comparing
the two collections.
