Subject [jira] [Commented] (ACCUMULO-3650) Remove ProtocolBuffers dependency from core
Date Wed, 11 Mar 2015 16:44:39 GMT

Christopher Tubbs commented on ACCUMULO-3650:
---------------------------------------------

While I don't mind protobuf being used, it does seem that we use it for so little that it
doesn't seem to me to be "worth the pain", either. I'd favor removing it (at least for now,
and until we have a compelling need to leverage it later).

> Protocol buffers was used as a part of the data-center replication feature. It was meant
to be a server-side only construct, not leaking out to clients, but this unintentionally happened
via ReplicationOperationsImpl.
> If we move this functionality into the master or tserver, we could avoid the need for
clients to even know this is happening under the hood. It would give users more flexibility
without running into issues like HADOOP-9845.
