Subject [jira] [Commented] (ACCUMULO-650) Add table descriptions
Date Mon, 25 Mar 2013 18:07:15 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/ACCUMULO-650?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13612920#comment-13612920

Keith Turner commented on ACCUMULO-650:
---------------------------------------

I think the per table config route would be best.  Ultimately its still sored in zookeeper,
just in a more systematic way.   This would involve adding an enum to o.a.a.core.conf.Property

could still have API methods in table operation to set and get desc.  These would be similar
to methods for manipulating locality groups and iterator settings, which are also per table
configs.  Also, if you are still thinking of adding something to create table, I still think
we should add a NewTableConfig method.

Would still have an option on tables command to list descriptions.   Would we still need the
desc command?  I do not really like the name, but I am uncertain about the functionality.
 As far as functionality, it may make things slightly simpler for the user rather than using
the config command.   Also having a specific shell command for setting it puts a layer of
indirection between the implementation and the user.

> We should add a table description field, probably in zookeeper, to store an optional
field end users can use to provide their relevant information on the table.
