Subject [jira] [Created] (ACCUMULO-2445) API should use collection-of-bytes representation instead of Text

-------------------------------------

             Summary: API should use collection-of-bytes representation instead of Text
                 Key: ACCUMULO-2445
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/ACCUMULO-2445
             Project: Accumulo
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: client
    Affects Versions: 1.5.1, 1.6.0
            Reporter: Sean Busbey
             Fix For: 1.7.0


Right now we use Text as a container for bytes rather than as a UTF8 representation of a string.
This results in some gymnastics when people wish to use byte sequences that are not valid
UTF8 (see ACCUMULO-2437).

We should use some representation of plain bytes (ideally byte[] or ByteBuffer) and deprecate
the use of Text so we can remove it later.
