Subject [jira] [Commented] (ACCUMULO-745) Use a CLI library consistently to parse parameters in all utilities.
Date Thu, 03 Jan 2013 20:52:12 GMT


John Vines commented on ACCUMULO-745:

Furthermore, I disagree with the strong checking for conf/masters and conf/slaves in
I can understand this being in start-all and/or tup, but not in config, as scripts which do
not rely on those files use as well. This also breaks the python functional tests
on the first run, given an empty conf directory.

> In a few utilities, the command-line parsing is pretty lazy.  There's no usage, just
an NPE if you don't provide all the magic options on the command-line.  In particular, Initialize
doesn't use an off-the-shelf library for command-line parsing, and it really should.
> See ACCUMULO-744.
> In addition, many command-line utilities can and should be able to read accumulo-site.xml,
and do not need to provide username/password/instance/zookeeper information by default.
