Subject [jira] [Commented] (ACCUMULO-3338) Update example classpath configuration
Date Sun, 16 Nov 2014 16:53:33 GMT


Josh Elser commented on ACCUMULO-3338:

bq. Why did this commit strip useful comments from the template

A "close" comment followed immediately with a new "open" adds no value whatsoever in my opinion.
That is why I removed the "close" comments.

bq.  Especially since the script explicitly looks for some of them, but
was not also modified? 

I was not aware that comments were of any significance in generating the actual configs. I'm
not going to feel bad for missing that, but thank you for bringing it to my attention.

bq. they seem to map to a very specific 3rd party packaging

Any packaging would be considered "very specific" since it's the only packaging that would
be writing to such a location. These locations will ensure that Accumulo, out of the box with
the *example* configurations, can run on top of a Hortonworks installation. Unless you can
present some case where there are other jars that happen to also match these regexs, there
is no risk.

Again, these are *example* configurations which really aren't meant for production use. Users
shouldn't be using these configs outside of testing and have custom configuration files which
have a minimal set of classpath entries for their specific system.

jars which make them more likely to generally work.
