Subject [jira] Created: (HADOOP-5553) Change modifier of SequenceFile.CompressedBytes and SequenceFile.UncompressedBytes from private to public

Change modifier of SequenceFile.CompressedBytes and SequenceFile.UncompressedBytes from private
to public
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

                 Key: HADOOP-5553
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-5553
             Project: Hadoop Core
          Issue Type: Improvement
            Reporter: He Yongqiang


SequenceFile.rawValue() provides the only interface to navigate the underlying bytes. And
with some little work on implementing a customized ValueBytes can avoid reading all bytes
into memory. Unfortunately, the current nextRawValue will cast the passing ValueBytes to either
private class CompressedBytes or private class UnCompressedBytes, this will disallow user
further extension.
I can not see any reason that CompressedBytes and UnCompressedBytes should be set to private.
And since the ValueBytes is public and nextValue() casts it to either CompressedBytes or UnCompressedBytes,
i think it would be better if they are public.

I am stuck now by this issue, really appracited if this got resolved as soon as possible.
