Subject [jira] Commented: (HBASE-1015) pure C and C++ client libraries
Date Fri, 12 Feb 2010 16:25:28 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-1015?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12833054#action_12833054

Lars Francke commented on HBASE-1015:
-------------------------------------

I have looked into Avro quite a bit the last weeks so I was thinking that I could probably
easily provide an Avro interface alongside the Thrift interface.

What I don't quite understand how this issue fits in all that. Thrift and Avro can be used
with C/C++ but after reading this I have the feeling you mean something else than just a Thrift-like
client interface. If those turn out to be separate things I'll open a new issue and discuss
it there further.

> If via HBASE-794 first class support for talking via Thrift directly to HMaster and HRS
is available, then pure C and C++ client libraries are possible. 
> The C client library would wrap a Thrift core. 
> The C++ client library can provide a class hierarchy quite close to o.a.h.h.client and,
ideally, identical semantics. It  should be just a wrapper around the C API, for economy.
> Internally to my employer there is a lot of resistance to HBase because many dev teams
have a strong C/C++ bias. The real issue however is really client side integration, not a
fundamental objection. (What runs server side and how it is managed is a secondary consideration.)
