Subject Re: Hbase: Is possible to filter by integer value if the value is saved as string?
Date Fri, 19 Jul 2013 05:58:24 GMT
Only way to achieve this is to write your own ByteArrayComparable.
BinaryComparator wont work for your case.
But, I am wondering why you would store an Integer as String when you want
to do numerical comparison?
