Subject [jira] [Commented] (ACCUMULO-1643) Make default Hadoop dependency 1.2.1 (stable)
Date Fri, 18 Oct 2013 17:02:43 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/ACCUMULO-1643?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13799298#comment-13799298

Christopher Tubbs commented on ACCUMULO-1643:
---------------------------------------------

Generally, if dependencies were good at being backwards-compatible, it would be best to compile
against the earliest supported version. However, there's a few reasons why we'd want to not
do this:

# We don't want to encourage the use of older versions if users have an option.
# We want MiniAccumuloCluster to run against a stable version for our build tests.

Recognizing that the Maven dependency is not where we *establish* the range of compatibility
(we do that in documentation, informed by testing and knowledge of incompatibilities), I see
no reason not to update them, especially if it doesn't change the range of supported versions.
