Subject [jira] [Commented] (HBASE-4811) Support reverse Scan
Date Fri, 16 Aug 2013 04:07:48 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-4811?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13741889#comment-13741889

Lars Hofhansl commented on HBASE-4811:
--------------------------------------

I think we dropped the ball on this. We should finish this. How do other folks feel about
this.
The feature is great! We just have to be careful to avoid adding unnecessary APIs to the core
scanner classes.

> All the documentation I find about HBase says that if you want forward and reverse scans
you should just build 2 tables and one be ascending and one descending.  Is there a fundamental
reason that HBase only supports forward Scan?  It seems like a lot of extra space overhead
and coding overhead (to keep them in sync) to support 2 tables.  
> I am assuming this has been discussed before, but I can't find the discussions anywhere
about it or why it would be infeasible.
