HBaseAdmin (et al.) not accurate with Column vs. Column-Family usage
--------------------------------------------------------------------

                 Key: HBASE-1989
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-1989
             Project: Hadoop HBase
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: client
    Affects Versions: 0.20.1
            Reporter: Doug Meil
            Priority: Minor



Consider the classes HBaseAdmin and HColumnDescriptor.

HColumnDescriptor is really referring to a "column family" and not a "column" (i.e., family:qualifer).

Likewise, in HBaseAdmin there is a method called "addColumn" that takes an HColumnDescriptor
instance.

I labeled this a bug in the sense that it produces conceptual confusion because there is a
big difference between a column and column-family in HBase and these terms should be used
consistently.  The code works, though.
