Subject [jira] [Commented] (ACCUMULO-1958) Range constructor lacks key checks, should be non-public
Date Thu, 05 Dec 2013 18:20:35 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/ACCUMULO-1958?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13840362#comment-13840362

Bill Havanki commented on ACCUMULO-1958:
----------------------------------------

My preferred solution for this is to make the constructor protected, but that would alter
the API. Is it too late to do that for 1.6.0?

> This ticket pertains to the Range class constructor with the following signature:
> {noformat}
> public Range(Key, Key, boolean, boolean, boolean, boolean)
> {noformat}
> The constructor does not check that the start key is before the end key, like every other
constructor in the class. Since the constructor is public, this makes it possible for a caller
to create invalid ranges.
> The constructor is used by other constructors that take in existing range objects, where
the key check has implicitly been done, and so it would make sense to skip the check in this
one, but then the constructor visibility should be at least protected.
