Subject Configurable comparators per-CF?
Date Fri, 18 Jun 2010 18:43:40 GMT
Hey,

In Hadoop, it's possible to override how two keys are compared with
WritableComparable (
http://hadoop.apache.org/common/docs/current/api/org/apache/hadoop/io/WritableComparator.html),
and the same thing is possible in Cassandra with CompareWith (
http://wiki.apache.org/cassandra/StorageConfiguration).

Would it be possible to do something similar for the unit of sorting in
HBase, the ColumnFamily?

Thanks,
Jeff
