Text is not subclassable because set(Text) and compareTo(Object) access the other instance's
private members directly
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

                 Key: HADOOP-2738
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-2738
             Project: Hadoop Core
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: io
    Affects Versions: 0.16.0
            Reporter: Jim Kellerman
            Assignee: Jim Kellerman


Text objects should not access other Text objects private members directly. Both set(Text)
and compareTo(Object) do.
Because these two methods access private members of the other object, Text is not subclassable.
Either these two methods should be modified to use the accessors that are already available,
or Text should be declared as a final class, because as it exists today it is not subclassable.
