Subject [jira] [Commented] (YARN-6022) Revert changes of AbstractResourceRequest
Date Tue, 03 Jan 2017 20:55:58 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/YARN-6022?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=15796153#comment-15796153

Wangda Tan commented on YARN-6022:

[~kasha] / [~asuresh], 

Missed your last comment somehow, apologize for the last reply. Since this is not included
by branch-2.8, so we should have enough time to change it.

I want to revert the change because two part:
1) It makes a stable API inherit from an unstable API, which is very confusing. Even if we
don't want user to use the AbstractRR, but it is unavoidable. According to API definition,
user should write code like:
AbstractResourceRequest r = new ResourceRequest(...);

Apparently we don't want user to do things like this because AbstractRR could be changed.

2) Most importantly, it is not necessary. YARN-5774 only requires scheduler returns normalized
resource instead of update resource inside a given resource request. To me, we should avoid
changing user-facing API because of internal implementation, this change is completely avoidable.
I suggest to keep the original API.

> YARN-5774 added AbstractResourceRequest to make easier internal scheduler change, this
is not a correct approach: For example, with this change, we need to make AbstractResourceRequest
to be public/stable. And end users can use it like:
> {code}
> AbstractResourceRequest request = ...
> request.setCapability(...)
> {code}
> But AbstractResourceRequest should not be visible by application at all. 
> We need to revert it from branch-2.8 / branch-2 / trunk.
