Subject [jira] [Commented] (ACCUMULO-1399) Pluggable commands for the shell
Date Thu, 09 May 2013 01:12:13 GMT


Christopher Tubbs commented on ACCUMULO-1399:

The shell was originally designed to support pluggable commands. However, it was decided against
making this a user-facing feature because of the confusion it might cause distinguishing between
"official" features, and commands users might grow accustomed to on a particular customized
installation (and because nobody had much interest in maintaining other users' commands that
behave badly).

Better integration with other commands is also a motivation for ACCUMULO-1045, and I think
our efforts might be better suited towards that area, leveraging things like auto-completion
in bash, and standardized command-line parsing.

> Proposing modification to the Shell to allow applications to create their own set of
commands. This might be accomplished using java.util.ServiceLoader or something like it. Specifically,
I'm thinking of a case where I have a create table command that is different than the one
provided by the Shell. In my case, my create table command may create one or more tables and
setup iterators on them.
