Subject [jira] [Commented] (ACCUMULO-1394) Allow RegExFilter subclass to call setNegate.
Date Wed, 08 May 2013 18:59:16 GMT


Billie Rinaldi commented on ACCUMULO-1394:

I think we were trying to avoid making option names such as NEGATE available to users.  (RegExFilter
options were grandfathered in.)  I take it your iterator doesn't extend Filter, so protected
wouldn't be sufficient?

> I wrote an iterator that sets RegExFilter options inside its init() method. I created
a HashMap to hold options, then added entries for RegExFilter.COLF_REGEX. However, the Filter.NEGATE
is private and the setNegate function only accepts an IteratorSetting option which I don't
have inside my iterator's init() method (true?). So I simply used a "negate" string literal
which I don't like.
> I propose making NEGATE public as is done in the RegExFilter class. Any reason not to?
Is there a better approach?
