Subject [jira] Commented: (HBASE-1400) Improve REST interface semantics and efficiency
Date Sat, 30 May 2009 18:12:07 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-1400?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12714752#action_12714752

Andrew Purtell commented on HBASE-1400:


Yes this works, in the sense that it will launch and all of the (manual) simple test cases
enumerated in https://issues.apache.org/jira/secure/attachment/12409446/stargate-testing.pdf
complete without error. I haven't checked to see what corner cases exist in Jersey or what
capabilities I think Jetty gives for free e.g. transfer encoding of gzip or deflate.

Regarding integration with the project, it is my opinion that the REST bits should come out
of core and Stargate should become a new contrib. I implemented this last week for some other
project I am working on so it was built to a set of internal design criteria. For this version
contributed to the community, I think the community should change it if the consensus on various
details differs from what is in place now.  While the iron is hot I would be willing to do
some of that work. I like Jersey a lot. Building or changing complex behaviors takes little
time. I built all of Stargate in less than one week, including learning curve.

> Improve the semantics of the REST interface: more metadata operations, bulk updates,
protobufs (if Accept equals "application/x-protobuf" for GET or Content-Type equals the same
for PUT or POST) instead of multipart/related (which is not supported now anyway) etc. for
general efficiency and support for queries or scanners that return multiple KeyValues. 
> I am working on a proposal.
