Subject Re: Problem with HFile lexical comparison
Date Thu, 20 Jun 2013 00:11:01 GMT
Thanks for the replies, I tried the KeyValue.KVComparator but still no
luck. So I commented the comparator and played around with the sequence of
writing the qualifiers to the HFile. (see code here:

If I set the variable String[] starr = new String[]{"a", "d", "dt", "dth"}
then the code breaks while writing the qualifier "dt" to the HFile.
If I set the variable String[] starr = new String[]{"a", "dth", "dt", "d"}
then the code runs successfully.
If I set the variable String[] starr = new String[]{"dth", "dt", "d", "a"}
then the code breaks while writing "a" to the HFile

Does this mean that if the qualifiers start with the same character then
the longest qualifier should be written first? Else the usual lexical order
is honoured?

The code throws following stack trace
Added a key not lexically larger than previous
at com.mycompany.hbase.process.myprocess.myFunction(MyClass.java:1492)

I am using hbase-0.94.2
