Subject [jira] [Commented] (ACCUMULO-3726) Restore MockShell in public API
Date Wed, 15 Apr 2015 18:59:59 GMT


Josh Elser commented on ACCUMULO-3726:


I was worried about that. This seems like yet-another-public-api-shouldnt-be-public-api issue.
MockShell came from o.a.a.c.client.mock.MockShell and went to
Shell came from o.a.a.core.util.Shell and went to It makes 0 sense to assume
MockShell is public API but Shell is not (and also causes more problems as it leaks Shell
into the public API).

Given that, I would be in favor of breaking our rules on compatibility.

1. MockShell should never have been in public API (as Shell was never public API)
2. It is not easily restored and deprecated.
3. It is likely very low risk that someone was using themselves (we ourselves only reference
it in a single test case).

cc/ [~busbey] since you have been very adamant in the past on topics of this matter.

> MockShell was moved from o.a.a.core.client.mock. to which is a violation
of our public API statement.
> It needs to be restored and deprecated with a proper cycle.
