Subject [jira] [Commented] (HBASE-13977) Convert getKey and related APIs to Cell
Date Thu, 02 Jul 2015 11:13:04 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-13977?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=14611800#comment-14611800

ramkrishna.s.vasudevan commented on HBASE-13977:

I went thro the changes once again
bq."Gets the current key in the form of a cell." That there is no value returned?
Yes. only the key part. Earlier it was a BB view of the key - now it is a Cell.
bq.In getKeyAsCell, why bother with a ByteBuffer when all you are doing is passing an array?
Ya, you are right. I changed that to just use the System.arrayCopy in BufferedDataEncoder.getKeyAsCell.
bq.getKeyAsCell is defined in multiple Interfaces? Can we avoid that?
For the DBE cases I think we cannot do it now because the entire seeker is now the BuffereddataEncoder.
 So we need some API in the DatablockEncoder to be used. May be another JIRA if it is possible?
bq.if (getComparator().compare(splitCell, getKeyAsCell()) <= 0) {
Valid point. But previously for creating a BB we were creating a BB object but now we are
creating a cell every time.  But thinking in terms of BufferedBackedCell it would be better
if it had been a cell. The current code is trying to do 
-         ByteBuffer bb = getKey();
-          if (getComparator().compare(splitCell, bb.array(), bb.arrayOffset(),
-              bb.limit()) <= 0) {
After BufferedBackedcells come - we cannot have it the above way as array() and arrayOffset()
are not expected to be used.  Hence making it as cell would be encapsulate us of this inner
I thought of using the instance level keyOnlyKv in the HFileScannerImpl - but since the HalfStorefileReader
is trying to cache the firstKey we cannot use that instance level variable in HFileScanner
and use that to just set the byte[] every time.

> During the course of changes for HBASE-11425 felt that more APIs can be converted to
return Cell instead of BB like getKey, getLastKey. 
> We can also rename the getKeyValue to getCell.
