Subject [jira] Created: (HBASE-2036) Use Configuration instead of HBaseConfiguration
Date Thu, 10 Dec 2009 13:10:18 GMT
Use Configuration instead of HBaseConfiguration 

                 Key: HBASE-2036
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-2036
             Project: Hadoop HBase
          Issue Type: Improvement
            Reporter: Enis Soztutar

HBaseConfiguration extends Configuration but does not add any functionality to it. The only
function is hashCode() which really should be refactored into Hadoop Configuration. 
I think in all the places(especially in the client side)  HBase methods and classes should
accept Configuration rather than HBaseConfiguration. The creation of the configuration with
the right files (hbase-site and hbase-default) should not be encapsulated in a private method,
but in a public static one. 

The issues has arisen in our nutch+hbase patch for which we include both nutch configuration
and hbase configurations. Moreover people may want to include separate project-specific configuration
files to their configurations without the need to be dependent on the HBaseConfiguration.
