Subject [jira] [Created] (CRUNCH-181) UUID PType support for Writables
Date Tue, 19 Mar 2013 23:39:15 GMT
Micah Whitacre created CRUNCH-181:

             Summary: UUID PType support for Writables
                 Key: CRUNCH-181
             Project: Crunch
          Issue Type: Wish
          Components: Core
            Reporter: Micah Whitacre
            Assignee: Josh Wills
            Priority: Minor

UUID is a pretty basic and common datatype used for identifiers.  It'd be nice if there was
support through Writables.uuids() similar to other common data types.

The lack of support is most likely due to the lack of formal UUIDWritable support in Hadoop
itself but a UUIDWritable implementation has been posted for awhile[1] and seems pretty trivial
to even roll your own and incorporate.
