Subject [jira] [Commented] (ACCUMULO-3176) Add ability to create a table with user specified initial properties
Date Thu, 23 Oct 2014 04:25:34 GMT


Josh Elser commented on ACCUMULO-3176:

bq. No, because it only solves one race condition.

Sorry, I don't think I was clear. I meant to say it "helps mitigate", not implying that it
solves the entire problem. More specifically, that the proposed changes here would help solve
part of the problem. There is undeniably a bigger problem that needs solving.

bq. It's not nasty if you can only set properties when it's offline.

"nasty" was too colloquial on my part. I meant it as: only allowing table properties to change
is a *very* drastic change WRT current user operations/expectations. It's certainly the least
impactful code-change to solve the problem (read-as: zero code changes), but I would rather
solve the larger issue in some way that doesn't require such a change. I'm not entirely sure
of how we could do it though.

 Instead of just adding a new create method, a NewTableConfiguration class could be created
and passed and the other create methods deprecated.
