Subject [jira] [Commented] (ACCUMULO-739) Please add dot (.) as a valid character in column visibility tokens
Date Tue, 28 Aug 2012 17:56:08 GMT

Christopher Tubbs commented on ACCUMULO-739:
--------------------------------------------

Ed-

I agree. I actually don't see a need to require quoting to use the dot character. I think
it's reasonable to add it as a valid character in the labels, possibly along with spaces.
My only point was to express disagreement with Dave's "allow all un-reserved characters",
which could prevent any future enhancements.

To Keith's idea, I think quoting could be nice in the future, though I agree that it might
best be left to implement when that use case arrives. Also, it might be easier to avoid quoting
entirely, and only provide escapes for reserved characters.

Example: ((Sears|H\&M|Disney Store)&Store Manager)
vs.: ((Sears|"H&M"|"Disney Store")&"Store Manager")
