Subject [jira] [Commented] (HBASE-7692) Add utility class to generate ordered byte[] serialization
Date Wed, 30 Jan 2013 22:33:15 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-7692?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13567006#comment-13567006
] 

Nick Dimiduk commented on HBASE-7692:
-------------------------------------

I propose we annex the abandoned [Orderly|https://github.com/zettaset/orderly] library. It's
been forked a number of times, notably by [NGDATA|https://github.com/NGDATA/orderly]. I also
have my own fork, though I've admittedly not put very much effort into it until recently.

It's licensed Apache 2. Can anyone comment about the legal aspect of this?

> 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.
