Subject [jira] [Created] (ACCUMULO-3920) Deprecate mock and cease using it in our tests
Date Thu, 25 Jun 2015 17:46:05 GMT
Christopher Tubbs created ACCUMULO-3920:

             Summary: Deprecate mock and cease using it in our tests
                 Key: ACCUMULO-3920
             Project: Accumulo
          Issue Type: Task
            Reporter: Christopher Tubbs
             Fix For: 1.8.0

Numerous prior discussions have occurred, expressing a desire to deprecate (deprecate is not
the same as remove) mock, so we can properly communicate its current status as a "dying" (poorly
maintained, not kept up-to-date, lacking features) component of Accumulo. Some interest has
been expressed in keeping it around, but no work has been put in to it to fix it's numerous
divergences from the behavior of "real" Accumulo, add its missing features, or to improve
its API.

The task here is to:

* Cease and desist using mock in our tests (replacing it with MAC, EasyMock, etc., as appropriate)
* Mark mock {{@Deprecated}} until it is eventually removed in a major release

Further discussion, if necessary, can be held later regarding its actual removal.
