------------------------------------

             Summary: Introduce a KeyBuilder classc
                 Key: ACCUMULO-4376
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/ACCUMULO-4376
             Project: Accumulo
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: client
            Reporter: Josh Elser
             Fix For: 1.9.0


In looking at ACCUMULO-4375, I was a little frustrated at how we have 3x constructors than
Key really provides just to support {{byte[]}}, {{Text}}, and {{CharSequence}} arguments.
Additionally, the {{copy}} argument forces the user to use the most specific (most arguments)
constructor if they want to avoid the copy. This makes constructing a Key from just a row
while avoiding a copy very pedantic.

I think a KeyBuilder (or KeyFactory) class would be a big usability benefit and reduce the
amount of code that clients have to write to most efficiently construct Keys.
