Subject [jira] [Commented] (ACCUMULO-1989) Can't configure (default) namespace parameters from shell
Date Tue, 31 Dec 2013 02:15:50 GMT


Christopher Tubbs commented on ACCUMULO-1989:

The default namespace is the empty string, similar to java's default package. Namespaces allow
tables to be fully qualified. So, tables in the default namespace are fully qualified without
a namespace prefix. The problem is, that doesn't show up well in the shell when we list namespaces.
The string "(default)" was chosen as a placeholder, because we can't show an empty string
(Eclipse, and other IDEs do something similar to show the "(default package)").

Do you have a suggestion that is more intuitive? One option might be to have a separate flag
"--default-namespace" to expose it more obviously.

> The shell has a problem with parentheses, this makes it impossible to, e.g. remove an
iterator from the (default) namespace.
