Subject Virtues and pitfall of using TYPES?
Date Sat, 19 Feb 2011 03:56:31 GMT

I've been too smart for my own good trying to type columns, on the theory
that it would later increase performance by having more efficient
comparators in place. So if a string represents an integer, I would convert
it to an integer and declare the column as such. Same for LONG.

What I found is that during the write operation, the type conversion kills
the performance. It's really not too trivial amount of time.

Has anyone had a similar experience?
