Subject [jira] [Commented] (HBASE-7692) Add utility class to generate ordered byte[] serialization
Date Sat, 02 Mar 2013 20:27:14 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-7692?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13591503#comment-13591503

James Taylor commented on HBASE-7692:

I'm investigating moving Phoenix to use Orderly. It's very similar to what we're doing today,
but has more functionality with a cleaner API.

[~saint.ack@gmail.com] The Writable stuff is used as a bytes pointer, not as a client/server
data exchange mechanism. Phoenix uses them the same way. It's just a lightweight way to have
an offset/length into a byte array. You can also reset the byte[],offset,length on an instance
which prevents having to re-instantiate a new one every time (unlike the java.nio.ByteBuffer)

The permutations are useful. One set of them instantiate a new object on deserialize (for
Java native object types like Integer and Long), while the others reuse a byte buffer to hand
you back what was deserialized. Both are useful under different circumstances. We'll try to
use the latter.

It'd be great if this could be packaged as a separate maven module such that Phoenix can depend
on it since it's still on the 0.94 branch.

> 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.
