Subject [jira] [Commented] (HBASE-8089) Add type support
Date Thu, 08 Aug 2013 19:49:48 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-8089?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13733898#comment-13733898

stack commented on HBASE-8089:
------------------------------

bq. An HBase that ships with an API for describing data types and implementations of a set
of common definitions takes the next step in interoperability.

So you are thinking more than just a client-side utility lib but an actual facade that does
typing (though it is all client-side) as in for example TypedHTable that does something like
typedHTable.put(new Put(row).addInteger(12345)) and int i = typedHTable.get(new Get(row).getInteger());?
 HBase internally is still all byte arrays but it'd have this new class that made it look
like we could exploit this typing info server-side (e.g. better compression)?  I suppose I'd
have to register a serializer w/ this new TypedHTable too?  Would the serializer be per table?

> This proposal outlines an improvement to HBase that provides for a set of types, above
and beyond the existing "byte-bucket" strategy. This is intended to reduce user-level duplication
of effort, provide better support for 3rd-party integration, and provide an overall improved
experience for developers using HBase.
