Re: PrefixFilter is not working with long in HBase

If your row keys really are really longs, i.e stored as: Long.getBytes()
and NOT Long.toString().getBytes() than you could just use:

Filter rowFilter = new RowFilter(CompareOp.LESS, new

You can verify how row keys are stored by doing:

scan '<your_table_name>', {LIMIT =>1}

in HBase shell. If your row keys show up as \x escaped HEX than you stored
longs, if they are human readable, you stored the string representation of
a long instead and you'll have to do it your way.
