Subject [jira] [Created] (HBASE-8462) Custom timestamps should not be allowed to be negative
Date Tue, 30 Apr 2013 01:56:16 GMT
Enis Soztutar created HBASE-8462:
------------------------------------

             Summary: Custom timestamps should not be allowed to be negative
                 Key: HBASE-8462
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-8462
             Project: HBase
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: Client
            Reporter: Enis Soztutar
            Assignee: Enis Soztutar
             Fix For: 0.98.0, 0.94.8, 0.95.1


Client supplied timestamps should not be allowed to be negative, otherwise unpredictable results
will follow. Especially, since we are encoding the ts using Bytes.Bytes(long), negative timestamps
are sorted after positive ones. Plus, the new PB messages define ts' as uint64. 

Credit goes to Huned Lokhandwala for reporting this.
