Subject Re: Is it possible to get list of row keys?
Date Wed, 02 Mar 2011 09:53:53 GMT

I'm also facing the need to retrieve all row keys.

What do you mean with "stable" order?
 From this thread, I understand paging method with RandomPartitioner will return all keys
(shuffled, but missing key, no double key).
This seems to have already told, but I prefer to double-check...
