Subject [jira] [Created] (HBASE-7692) Add utility class to generate ordered byte[] serialization
Date Mon, 28 Jan 2013 05:51:12 GMT
Nick Dimiduk created HBASE-7692:
-----------------------------------

             Summary: Add utility class to generate ordered byte[] serialization
                 Key: HBASE-7692
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-7692
             Project: HBase
          Issue Type: Improvement
            Reporter: Nick Dimiduk
            Assignee: Nick Dimiduk


The current Bytes utility class works, but produces output that does not maintain the native
sort ordering of the input value. This results in, for example, a negative value that does
not necessarily sort before a positive value. HBase should provide a canonical implementation
of such a serialization format so that third-parties can reliably build on top of HBase. This
will allow an implementation for HIVE-3634, HIVE-2599, or HIVE-2903 that is compatible with
similar features in Pig.
