Subject Re: CompositeType/DynamicCompositeType for Row Key
Date Tue, 28 Feb 2012 16:59:32 GMT
My row keys will actually be a date range.  Where the first value is the
starting date and the second value will be the length of that date range.

Each column inside each row will represent metadata related to a specific
product on during that date range.

My question would be do I get any advantages with using the CompositeType
for my row key versus doing manual concatenation of the two values in my
code?
