Subject [jira] [Created] (ACCUMULO-756) Thrift API should be removed and abstracted
Date Thu, 06 Sep 2012 01:42:07 GMT
Christopher Tubbs created ACCUMULO-756:

             Summary: Thrift API should be removed and abstracted
                 Key: ACCUMULO-756
             Project: Accumulo
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: dist, thrift
    Affects Versions: 1.5.0
            Reporter: Christopher Tubbs
            Assignee: John Vines
             Fix For: 1.5.0

The thrift API for communication between components should be abstracted out and made more
generic, so we can plug in different communications mechanisms. The thrift code generation
and the generated code should be moved to a specific implementation of this abstraction, and
put in a separate sub-module.

This can help with:
 1. Making full mocking support easier (ACCUMULO-14) with an in-process "RPC" implementation.
 2. Testing alternative protocols, like Avro, Protocol Buffers, SSL, etc.
 3. Minimizing dependencies and isolating thrift generated code from code that is maintained
 4. Wire compatibility (ACCUMULO-751).
 5. More?
