Subject [jira] Commented: (HBASE-1990) Add methods accepting strings for family/qualifier in client
Date Fri, 20 Nov 2009 11:01:40 GMT

Lars George commented on HBASE-1990:
------------------------------------

Will do. Let me try to do a proof in a unit test and then propose a solution.

>                 Key: HBASE-1990
>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-1990
>             Project: Hadoop HBase
>          Issue Type: Improvement
>          Components: client
>    Affects Versions: 0.20.0
>            Reporter: Doug Meil
>            Priority: Minor
>             Fix For: 0.21.0, 0.20.3
>

> Consider the following client code...
> 	byte b[] = result.getValue( Bytes.toBytes("family"), Bytes.toBytes("qualifier") );
>         put.add( Bytes.toBytes("family"), Bytes.toBytes("qualifer"), Bytes.toBytes( "value")
 );
> ... the requirement to supply family and qualifiers as bytes causes code to get cluttered
and verbose.  At worst, it scares peoples un-necessarily about HBase development, and at best,
developers inevitably will get tired of doing all this casting and then add their own wrapper
classes around the HBase client to make their code more readable.
> I would like to see something like this in the API...
> 	byte b[] = result.getValue( "family"), "qualifier" );
>         put.add( "family", "qualifer", Bytes.toBytes( "value")  );
> ... where the Hbase client can perform the required Bytes.toBytes() conversion behind
the scenes.
