Subject [jira] [Commented] (HADOOP-14066) VersionInfo should be marked as public API
Date Tue, 11 Apr 2017 12:44:41 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-14066?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=15964309#comment-15964309

Steve Loughran commented on HADOOP-14066:

There's no harm, though as all we are doing is tagging the interface as public in future,
we're implicitly marking it as public everywhere.

> org.apache.hadoop.util.VersionInfo is commonly used by applications that work with multiple
versions of Hadoop.
> In case of Hive, this is used in a shims layer to identify the version of hadoop and
use different shim code based on version (and the corresponding api it supports).
> I checked Pig and Hbase as well and they also use this class to get version information.
> However, this method is annotated as "@private" and "@unstable".
> This code has actually been stable for long time and is widely used like a public api.
I think we should mark it as such.
> Note that there are apis to find the version of server components in hadoop, however,
this class necessary for finding the version of client.
