Class BytesRefBlockPool

  • All Implemented Interfaces:

    public class BytesRefBlockPool
    extends Object
    implements Accountable
    Represents a logical list of ByteRef backed by a ByteBlockPool. It uses up to two bytes to record the length of the BytesRef followed by the actual bytes. They can be read using the start position returned when they are appended.

    The BytesRef is written so it never crosses the ByteBlockPool.BYTE_BLOCK_SIZE boundary. The limit of the largest BytesRef is therefore ByteBlockPool.BYTE_BLOCK_SIZE-2 bytes.
