Subject [jira] [Commented] (HADOOP-8152) Expand public APIs for security library classes
Date Thu, 08 Mar 2012 19:03:58 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-8152?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13225399#comment-13225399

Andrew Purtell commented on HADOOP-8152:

+1 on promoting these interfaces to public, at least the methods in common use across subprojects

This was sent to user@hbase:

At least on the HBase side, I'll [Andrew Purtell] take the pain once to rework our related
sources if the APIs on their way to stability make one more change. However, it would be preferable
to avoid further need for hacks. Use of reflection can ride over an API in transition, but
it can also punt breakage due to API change to runtime, where we'd least like to see it for
the first time. 

Relevant here I think.

Both of these classes are marked LimitedPrivate(HDFS,MR) but should probably be marked more
generally public.
