    Component/s: CQL

> Protocol [short] is used as unsigned and signed value
> -----------------------------------------------------
>                 Key: CASSANDRA-13527
>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CASSANDRA-13527
>             Project: Cassandra
>          Issue Type: Bug
>          Components: CQL
>            Reporter: Jorge Bay
>            Priority: Major
>              Labels: client-impacting
> The protocol specification describes {{\[short\]}} as unsigned int16, but 
> then on the section {{2.3. stream}} it describes it like a signed int16, 
> being {{0x7fff}} the maximum positive value.
> Additionally, {{\[int\]}} and {{\[long\]}} are signed, making the identifier 
> {{\[short\]}} somewhat confusing.
> For disambiguation, it would be nice to introduce {{\[ushort\]}} or 
> {{\[unsigned short\]}} (replacing most entries) and leave {{\[short\]}} as 
> signed value, mainly for stream ids.
