Subject [jira] [Commented] (ACCUMULO-3604) connector.instanceOperations().setSystemProperty(String,String) returns silently for non-changeable ZK Property's
Date Thu, 21 May 2015 23:01:17 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/ACCUMULO-3604?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=14555216#comment-14555216
] 

Keith Turner commented on ACCUMULO-3604:
----------------------------------------

The silent failure seems like a bug to me.  I am basing this on the assumption that if a user
sets a prop, then they expect something to happen.  When nothing happens, they may have to
waste their time trying to figure out why nothing happened.  Personally if I were in this
situation, I would rather things fail fast instead of silently.

> Only a subset of the configuration {{Property}}'s in Accumulo are modifiable via ZooKeeper
(defined by {{Property.isValidZooProperty}}).
> {{connector.instanceOperations().setProperty(String,String)}} updates the provided property
name with the given value in ZooKeeper. The thing that is never mentioned is that only a subset
of the properties in Accumulo are allowed to be overriden in ZooKeeper. Furthermore, the user
receives no indication that their call failed.
> The Javadoc on {{setSystemProperty(String,String)}} should be updated to inform the users
that only some properties can be changed by this method, and some information should be returned
back to the user to let them know that their call did not succeed (likely an Exception).
