Subject [jira] [Commented] (ACCUMULO-3402) Introduction of the mapreduce maven module breaks 1.6 compatibility
Date Thu, 11 Dec 2014 23:32:13 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/ACCUMULO-3402?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=14243353#comment-14243353

Josh Elser commented on ACCUMULO-3402:
--------------------------------------

bq. I like option 1).

Ditto, that's what I'm leaning towards as well. It's less abrupt than reverting the old commits
and kepts backwards compatibility.

bq. (without comment on if a dependency coordinate change should be considered breaking)

And just to address this, yes, I know this is currently unhandled by any accepted practices
that we have for Accumulo, but I believe the breakage that we create by doing this is quite
real and obvious. Please start a thread on dev if you'd like to discuss this further and we
work through the issue there.

> The introduction of mapreduce maven module breaks backwards compatibility with 1.6.
> Code that previously worked against 1.6 (that used our mapreduce classes) is now broken
without a deprecation cycle -- specifically trying to compile Hive against Accumulo 1.7 is
broken.
> While the classes themselves haven't technically changed, the required dependencies have.
In my eyes, this is an incompatible change that violates our current public API rules.
