Subject [jira] [Updated] (ACCUMULO-756) Thrift API should be removed and abstracted
Date Fri, 14 Jun 2013 18:24:21 GMT


Christopher Tubbs updated ACCUMULO-756:

    Status: In Progress  (was: Patch Available)

I'm going to pick this back up after the switch to git. It'll be much easier to handle the
refactoring when I can track file renames.

> The thrift API for communication between components should be abstracted out and made
more generic, so we can plug in different communications mechanisms. The thrift code generation
and the generated code should be moved to a specific implementation of this abstraction, and
put in a separate sub-module.
> This can help with:
>  1. Making full mocking support easier (ACCUMULO-14) with an in-process "RPC" implementation.
>  2. Testing alternative protocols, like Avro, Protocol Buffers, SSL, etc.
>  3. Minimizing dependencies and isolating thrift generated code from code that is maintained
>  4. Wire compatibility (ACCUMULO-751).
>  5. More?
