Type: New Feature
Fix Version/s: 0.8.1
Being able to provide arguments to a comparator, to parametrize its behavior, can be useful.
For example, a generic ReverseComparator is trivial to write, but without the ability to provide arguments at the comparator constriction, it cannot be used.
CASSANDRA-2231 provides another use case for this.
This ticket proposes to introduce a parser for comparator definition that supports optional parameters and to introduce a generic ReverseType as a simple example of this.
