Subject [jira] [Commented] (ACCUMULO-1958) Range constructor lacks key checks, should be non-public
Date Thu, 05 Dec 2013 18:49:35 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/ACCUMULO-1958?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13840399#comment-13840399

Keith Turner commented on ACCUMULO-1958:
----------------------------------------

Another way to look at it is that its being deprecated because it does not have a range check
AND other method exist that do and serve the same purpose.

> 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.
