Subject [jira] [Created] (ACCUMULO-2929) Cannot interact with columns containing colon in shell
Date Thu, 19 Jun 2014 21:35:27 GMT
Josh Elser created ACCUMULO-2929:
------------------------------------

             Summary: Cannot interact with columns containing colon in shell
                 Key: ACCUMULO-2929
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/ACCUMULO-2929
             Project: Accumulo
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: shell
    Affects Versions: 1.6.0, 1.5.1
            Reporter: Josh Elser
            Priority: Trivial
             Fix For: 1.5.2, 1.6.1, 1.7.0


For context: see http://stackoverflow.com/questions/24295183/is-there-a-way-to-pass-a-column-family-containing-colons-to-the-shells-scan-com

For commands that have a {{-c}} option (e.g. InsertCommand, GrepCommand, ScanCommand), there
is currently no way to specify a column family that contains a colon as it is interpreted
as the delimiter between the column family and column qualifier 'cf\[:cq\]'.

It would be very simple to support a basic escape '\' character that would allow users to
use column families which contain colons in the shell.

For example, to scan for the Key with a row of {{foo}}, a column family of {{person:information}},
and a column qualifier of {{name}}, I should be able to submit the following in the shell:

{noformat}
user@instance> scan -r foo -c person\:information:name
foo person:information:name [] Josh
{noformat}
