Subject [jira] [Commented] (ACCUMULO-1738) ArrayByteSequence string conversion use platform default encoding
Date Wed, 25 Sep 2013 21:35:06 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/ACCUMULO-1738?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13778114#comment-13778114
] 

William Slacum commented on ACCUMULO-1738:
------------------------------------------

I'm always in favor of removing/deprecating code, especially since the use case seems to be
purely for testing convenience. We should probably at least write a utility method to do {{String->ArrayByteSequence}}
since existing clients might use it.

> The class {{org.apache.accumulo.core.data.ArrayByteSequence}} has a constructor that
accepts a {{String}}, as well as a {{toString()}} method. Both use the platform default encoding
to convert from characters to bytes and back, which can cause problems. They should explicitly
use {{Constants.UTF8}} for conversion to ensure consistency across platforms.
