Subject [jira] [Commented] (HBASE-7887) Support configuring KeyValue Comparator at table level
Date Thu, 21 Feb 2013 03:48:12 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-7887?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13582884#comment-13582884
] 

Anoop Sam John commented on HBASE-7887:
---------------------------------------

[~zjushch] While creating the rowkey itself, the interger part in that can be changed so as
to make the sorting order correct. Lily project is having code for doing this.

> Now, KeyValue Comparator is static by code in HRegionInfo
> {code}
>   public KVComparator getComparator() {
>     return isRootRegion()? KeyValue.ROOT_COMPARATOR: isMetaRegion()?
>       KeyValue.META_COMPARATOR: KeyValue.COMPARATOR;
>   }
> {code}
> In some user cases, we need a personalized KeyValue Comparator.
> e.g. Current ByteArrayComparator couldn't be used to sort number if exists negative number.(Because
the bytes of -1 is bigger than the bytes of any other number)
> I think supporting per-table configuration of KeyValue Comparator would be useful.
> Welcome comments,
> I will make the patch tomorrow.
