Subject Re: Better Javadoc HTableDescriptor
Date Sat, 01 Oct 2011 12:02:58 GMT
While I was doing this I found out that there is a method in
HTableDescriptor called isMetaTable() which basically checks if the table is
a catalog table and the name kind of misleading. I am planning to rename
this method to isCatalogTable().

1. Is it ok to do this renaming considering that this is a client side API/
Admin API might lead to a lot of changes on client side for people already
using this method?

2. If yes, is it ok to do it under the same JIRA HBase-4486 or should
another another JIRA be file for this ?

3. If no, could this method be deprecated and another new method
isCatalogTable() be added ?
