Subject [jira] [Commented] (ACCUMULO-1612) Add conditional writer to mock accumulo
Date Wed, 14 May 2014 00:37:15 GMT


Josh Elser commented on ACCUMULO-1612:

[~ryanleary], while MockAccumulo is a nice, quick way a "mostly correct" environment to do
some basic testing against Accumulo, it's a large burden both to maintain and implement. Any
feature that is created, now also has to be implemented to work with MockAccumulo. As such,
we've had a fair share of bugs purely inside of MockAccumulo where the Mock implementation
was either buggy or did not provide an accurate test environment.

As such, we've been making more efforts behind MiniAccumuloCluster to address its deficiencies
(slower start time and requiring more resources being the biggest two offenders) as it provides
a (near) 100% accurate testing harness that you can use with great certainty to test out some
code before putting it on a real Accumulo instance. That's my assumption as to why this is
a won't fix. I would not expect a contribution to be turned away that implements ConditionalMutations
in MockAccumulo; it is just not planned to be implemented.
