Subject [jira] [Created] (PIRK-49) PrimitivePartioner does not account for locale settings
Date Fri, 12 Aug 2016 15:07:20 GMT
Tim Ellison created PIRK-49:

             Summary: PrimitivePartioner does not account for locale settings
                 Key: PIRK-49
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/PIRK-49
             Project: PIRK
          Issue Type: Bug
            Reporter: Tim Ellison
            Assignee: Tim Ellison

The class org.apache.pirk.schema.data.partitioner.PrimitiveTypePartitioner splits types into
parts using logic that is specific to the current locale of the runtime environment.

In particular, it does not take account of default big endian or little endian byte ordering,
and it uses the platform default encoding for converting to and from Strings.  This is likely
to lead to data corruption when exchanging data across different machine architectures and
OS installations.
