-SkipFilter javadoc is incorrect
Shrijeet Paliwal 2012-07-31, 06:39
The javadoc for SkipFilter (
> A wrapper filter that filters an entire row if any of the KeyValue checks
> do not pass.
But the example same javadocs gives to support this statement is wrong. The
*scan.setFilter(new SkipFilter(new ValueFilter(CompareOp.EQUAL,
new BinaryComparator(Bytes.toBytes(0))));* , will only emit rows which
have all column values zero. In other words it is going to skip all rows
ValueFilter(CompareOp.EQUAL, new BinaryComparator(Bytes.toBytes(0))) does
not pass , which happen to be all non zero valued cells.
In the same example a ValueFilter created with CompareOp.NOT_EQUAL will
filter out the rows which have a column value zero.
Please correct me if I am getting this wrong.
