Subject [jira] [Commented] (HIVE-2903) Numeric binary type keys are not compared properly
Date Tue, 27 Mar 2012 00:41:27 GMT


Ashutosh Chauhan commented on HIVE-2903:

Yeah, I am having hard time believing that hbase lets you do this. I am not sure if the bug
is present in some form in hbase. Your experiment does suggest its there in hbase. If it is,
then it certainly makes sense to patch hbase, instead of special handling it ourselves.

for example.
