Subject [jira] [Commented] (HIVE-2903) Numeric binary type keys are not compared properly
Date Tue, 27 Mar 2012 00:27:27 GMT


Navis commented on HIVE-2903:

@Ashutosh Chauhan,
You are right. This is just a hive specific binary format and not a general solution. So other
non-hive hbase client should know about that apriori for using it. (Should this be a patch
for hbase?)
But without this, rows with minus keys are popped-up especially after applying HIVE-2897.
I don't know how this should be handled.

> In current binary format for numbers, minus values are always greater than plus values,
for example.
