Subject [jira] Created: (HBASE-1015) pure C and C++ client libraries
Date Fri, 21 Nov 2008 20:05:44 GMT
pure C and C++ client libraries

                 Key: HBASE-1015
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-1015
             Project: Hadoop HBase
          Issue Type: New Feature
          Components: client
            Reporter: Andrew Purtell
            Priority: Minor

If via HBASE-794 first class support for talking via Thrift directly to HMaster and HRS is
available, then pure C and C++ client libraries are possible. 

The C client library would wrap a Thrift core. 

The C++ client library can provide a class hierarchy quite close to o.a.h.h.client and, ideally,
identical semantics. It  should be just a wrapper around the C API, for economy.

Internally to my employer there is a lot of resistance to HBase because many dev teams have
a strong C/C++ bias. The real issue however is really client side integration, not a fundamental
objection. (What runs server side and how it is managed is a secondary consideration.)
