Subject [jira] [Commented] (HBASE-15879) Introduce Key interface
Date Thu, 26 May 2016 23:32:13 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-15879?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=15303163#comment-15303163

ramkrishna.s.vasudevan commented on HBASE-15879:

bq.Shouldn't fact that a Key implementation is made of contiguous bytes be an implementation
The thought was to have something like a Key Interface. But as we are saying it is always
easy to form a Key from a given cell what ever is the format of the Cell. The intention here
was to say that some of the Cell impls are trying to have its key in a continuous structure
and let those cells have this interface. Because once we say Key then it means indirectly
every Cell is also a Key.
bq.public class KeyValue implements Cell, HeapSize, Cloneable, SettableSequenceId, SettableTimestamp,
Streamable, ContiguousKey {
Remove them as part of this JIRA? Not very sure. Streamable interface tries to again make
use of the fact that things that are contiguous can be written at a single shot rather than
splitting them and writing them. SettableSequenceId and SettableTimeStamp can be merged is
one thing that is possible.

> Introduce an interface called Key and allow Cell implementations to implement this Key
interface for cases like KeyValue, OffheapKeyValue and DBE cells (Except prefix tree) so that
we can avoid copies when we deal with only Cells in case of block index creations (like ROOT,
Bloom etc). Helps in reduction of garbage also.
