Subject [jira] [Commented] (HIVE-7048) CompositeKeyHBaseFactory should not use FamilyFilter
Date Wed, 21 May 2014 16:08:39 GMT


Xuefu Zhang commented on HIVE-7048:

The might be some misunderstanding. While CompositeKeyHBaseFactory was just recently introduced,
HBaseSerDe.HBASE_COMPOSITE_KEY_CLASS is old. CompositeKeyHBaseFactory was to replace the old
implementation around HBaseSerDe.HBASE_COMPOSITE_KEY_CLASS. The intention of extending this
functionality is good, but the obvious difficulty of doing so w/o knowing much about the key
would make me think twice. If we make CompositeKeyHBaseFactory abstract, user isn't able to
use HBaseSerDe.HBASE_COMPOSITE_KEY_CLASS to specify a key class any more.

> HIVE-6411 introduced a more generic way to provide composite key implementations via
custom factory implementations. However it seems like the CompositeHBaseKeyFactory implementation
uses a FamilyFilter for row key scans which doesn't seem appropriate. This should be investigated
further and if possible replaced with a RowRangeScanFilter.
