Subject [jira] [Commented] (HBASE-11437) Modify cell tag handling code to treat the length as unsigned
Date Tue, 08 Jul 2014 01:57:33 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-11437?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=14054417#comment-14054417

Anoop Sam John commented on HBASE-11437:
----------------------------------------

bq.Another option would be to deprecate both 'short Cell#getTagsLength' and 'int Cell#getTagsLengthUnsigned'
in 0.98 and 0.99 and for 2.0.0 replace both with 'int Cell#getTagsLength'. Thus, in trunk
we replace a short return type with an int and keep a reasonable method name, while respecting
deprecation convention. What do you think?

That will make the API clean in trunk atleast. Only thing is this will leave 98 and 1.0.0
with 2 deprecated APIs in Cell with out any replacements available there.  That will be bit
strange no?

> We store each tag's length and total tags length with 2 bytes in KeyValue buffer, HFiles
etc and we treat these lengths as short through out the code.  So the max length can be Short.MAX_VALUE.
  We can treat these lengths as unsigned and +ve always.  So we can actually treat these lengths
as int and store with 2 bytes so that the max length can reach 65535.
