Subject [jira] [Commented] (ACCUMULO-1009) Support encryption over the wire
Date Tue, 10 Sep 2013 21:48:51 GMT


Christopher Tubbs commented on ACCUMULO-1009:

I won't argue that the JSSE properties *must* come from the system properties, but you're
shooting yourself in the foot if you're rewriting custom socket code to accept them anywhere
else, and somebody's going to have to maintain that additional code.

At the very least, I still think using the JSSE properties are essential... I just won't argue
they have to be set as system properties (which are global). They could just as well come
from a client config file. What I wouldn't want to see is custom config key names that users
have to relearn, but essentially map to the same functionality as the JSSE ones they're already
familiar with. At that point, it'd be like adding new words to a dictionary, whose definitions
are "see some_other_word".

As for the client configuration, I don't mind them crossing paths at this point... but, if
we're going to do the additional effort in the future to better scope configuration to the
objects they configure at some point (and I hope we are), I don't want to be stuck with the
paths being crossed in the API. For that reason, I would not put the static method on AccumuloConfiguration.
I'd keep it a completely separate thing (in fact, I'd probably keep it a simple commons-configuration
Configuration object). If we need reuse, I'd tie it underneath, so when we do the effort of
better scoping configuration in the future, it won't disrupt the API, where users interact.
