Subject [jira] [Created] (ORC-222) StringStatisticsImpl munges min/max during write
Date Tue, 08 Aug 2017 00:22:00 GMT
Dain Sundstrom created ORC-222:

             Summary: StringStatisticsImpl munges min/max during write
                 Key: ORC-222
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/ORC-222
             Project: ORC
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: encoding
            Reporter: Dain Sundstrom
            Priority: Critical

String statistics are collected using Text which compares using raw bytes which are assumed
to be UTF-8.  When the input contains invalid UTF-8 sequences and these are the min or max
value, the writer converts these invalid sequences to a java.lang.String, which replaces invalid
UTF-8 sequences with the replacement character (0xFFFD).  This conversion happens here:


To work around this issue, the writer should use the `setMinimumBytes` Protocol Buffers API

The same issue exists during read, where the bytes are round tripped through java.lang.String.
 The read code is here:
