Subject Binary object hash code resolution in Apache Ignite 2.0
Date Fri, 27 Jan 2017 10:37:09 GMT

Historically we have fundamental flaw in how we deal with hashCode/equals
for BinaryObjects:
1) hashCode() is taken from original deserialized object.
2) But equals() is performed through binary array comparison.

We recently introduced BinaryIdentityResolver [1] as a part of DML feature,
but we didn't change any existing semantics, because it might broke
applications running AI 1.x.

Now I am thinking on how it should be designed properly in AI 2.0, and here
is my idea:
1) Every type will use BinaryArrayIdentityResolver [2] unless it is
overridden in config
2) Hash code is calculated only using resolver
3) Equality is determined only using resolver
4) Never ever use Object.hashCode().

This way we will have clean and consistent hashCode/equals semantics.

Any objections or comments?
