Subject [jira] Updated: (HADOOP-1737) [hbase] Make HColumnDescriptor data publically members settable
Date Mon, 20 Aug 2007 19:47:30 GMT

     [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-1737?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:all-tabpanel

stack updated HADOOP-1737:

    Attachment: hadoop-1737.patch

Here's a first attempt.

HADOOP-1737 Make HColumnDescriptor data publically members settable

M src/contrib/hbase/src/java/org/apache/hadoop/hbase/HStore.java
    Use new HColumnDescriptor accessors rather than make direct accesses
M  src/contrib/hbase/src/java/org/apache/hadoop/hbase/HColumnDescriptor.java
    Use enum ordinals instead.  Removed mapping between these defines and
    enum equivalents.  Made data members private and added accessors.
