Subject [jira] Commented: (HBASE-794) Language neutral IPC as a first class component of HBase architecture
Date Sat, 02 May 2009 04:09:30 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-794?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12705220#action_12705220

ryan rawson commented on HBASE-794:
-----------------------------------

Perhaps you can outline exactly how you can work around lack of NULLs in thrift that does
_not_ involve exceptions?  I think it should not be required to use exceptions during non-exceptional
events - many systems have lower performance under thrown exceptions, and the code path is
complex.

I just wish that compact binary protocols wasn't a late addition.  It doesn't give me confidence
by the late addition of what should have been there from day one.

> This issue considers making a language neutral IPC mechanism and wire format a first
class component of HBase architecture. Clients could talk to the master and regionserver using
this protocol instead of HRPC at their option.
> Options for language neutral IPC include:
> * Thrift: http://incubator.apache.org/thrift/
> * Protocol buffers: http://code.google.com/p/protobuf/
> * XDR: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/External_Data_Representation
