Subject [jira] [Commented] (DRILL-4791) Provide a light-weight, versioned client API
Date Wed, 20 Jul 2016 05:01:20 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DRILL-4791?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=15385335#comment-15385335

Paul Rogers commented on DRILL-4791:
------------------------------------

Absolutely. Nevertheless, please see the attached proposal for why a "light weight" and "versioned"
API may be helpful for client apps. The proposal suggests a revised JDBC interface on top
of the light-weight client.

> Drill's existing client APIs are "industrial strength" - they provide full access to
the sophisticated distributed, columnar RPCs which Drill uses internall. However, they are
too complex for most client needs. Provide a simpler API optimized for clients: row-based
result sets, synchronous, etc.
> At the same time, Drill clients must currently link with the same version of Drill code
as is running on the Drill cluster. This forces clients to upgrade in lock-step with the cluster.
Allow Drill clients to be upgraded after (or even before) the Drill cluster to simplify management
of desktop apps that use Drill.
