Subject [jira] Commented: (HBASE-639) add HBaseAdmin.getTableDescriptor function
Date Thu, 22 May 2008 23:35:56 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-639?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12599245#action_12599245

Michael Bieniosek commented on HBASE-639:

Bryan, I wouldn't mind using HTable.getMetadata(), but I wouldn't have known to look there
if not for this issue.  From a new-user perspective, it seems reasonable to expect that functions
like HBaseAdmin.listTables() and HTable.getMetadata() would live in the same class.

> Currently, to get a HTableDescriptor for a particular table, I have to call listTables()
and then loop through the HTableDescriptor[].  It would be nice if the API just had a function
to give me a single HTableDescriptor, since I already know the name of the table I'm interested
in.  Alternately, listTables could return a map of String -> HTableDescriptor, keyed off
table name.
