Subject [jira] [Commented] (ACCUMULO-1005) Authorizations and ColumnVisibility API should not accept Charset param
Date Wed, 17 Apr 2013 15:55:16 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/ACCUMULO-1005?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13634159#comment-13634159

John Vines commented on ACCUMULO-1005:
--------------------------------------

For the record, this does seem to be an extension of the UTF-8 ticket from a few months back.
I do agree with Chris though- we strive for visibilities to be human readable, in whatever
language that human uses, so lets make that the only option.

> The Charset parameter was added to the public API for ACCUMULO-241. However, this intermingles
internal serialization/comparison implementation, and the semantics of the public API.
> The Charset parameter effectively instructs Accumulo how to serialize the object. This
can break the comparison with what is stored in the table and is an unnecessary breakage.
> In the public API, we should only accept Strings, and allow any valid java String. Internally,
the serialization of these should consistently be UTF-8.
