-Re: PrefixFilter : not working for 'long' keys

Suppose your rowkey is 345346654. Are you trying to match this row on the
basis of prefix 3453?
If yes, then the default PrefixFilter wont work. I am a little skeptic that
prefix like this will work because AFAIK byte of 3453 is not guaranteed
to be a prefix of byte of 345346654.
I have played with a rowkey which is a sequence of long and short. In my
case it works as long as i am matching the entire variable(long,short,byte)
in Prefix Filter.
