Subject [jira] [Created] (HBASE-10071) support data type for get/scan in hbase shell
Date Tue, 03 Dec 2013 04:30:36 GMT
cuijianwei created HBASE-10071:

             Summary: support data type for get/scan in hbase shell
                 Key: HBASE-10071
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-10071
             Project: HBase
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: Client
    Affects Versions: 0.94.14
            Reporter: cuijianwei

Users tend to run hbase shell to query hbase quickly. The result will be shown as binary format
which may not look clear enough when users write columns using specified types, such as long/int/short.
Therefore, it may be helpful if the results could be shown as specified format. We make a
patch to extend get/scan in hbase shell in which user could specify the data type in get/scan
for each column as:
scan 'table', {COLUMNS=>['CF:QF:long']}
get 'table', 'r0', {COLUMN=>'CF:QF:long'}
Then, the result will be shown as Long type. The result of above get will be:
COLUMN                                        CELL                                       
 CF:QF                                timestamp=24311261, value=24311229
This extended format is compatible with previous format, if users do not specify the data
type, the command will also work and output binary format.
