Subject [jira] [Commented] (SPARK-3593) Support Sorting of Binary Type Data
Date Wed, 01 Oct 2014 14:28:35 GMT


Venkata Ramana G commented on SPARK-3593:

BinaryType is currently not derived under NativeType and does not have Ordering Support.
So BinaryType can be moved under NativeType as it already has JvmType defined, and required
to implement Ordering. 
Hive also identifies BinaryType these types under Primitive Types keeping other complex types
like Arrays,Maps,Structs and union as Complex Types.
This is similar to current TimestampType handling.
