Subject [jira] [Created] (HBASE-9266) Javadoc: Document that HBaseAdmin.flush(...) is synchronous
Date Mon, 19 Aug 2013 21:19:49 GMT
Lars Hofhansl created HBASE-9266:

             Summary: Javadoc: Document that HBaseAdmin.flush(...) is synchronous
                 Key: HBASE-9266
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-9266
             Project: HBase
          Issue Type: Bug
            Reporter: Lars Hofhansl
            Priority: Trivial
             Fix For: 0.98.0, 0.94.12, 0.95.3

Currently the Javadoc in HBaseAdmin.flush(...) says that this is an asynchronous operation.
Looking at the, however, it is in fact not.

Having this as a synchronous operation open ups some use cases we're interested in. For example
doing some ingest via the high level API with WAL disabled and then issue a flush through
the HBaseAdmin. When the flush succeeded we know the data is securely in HBase.
(This should work even with intermediary splits, as they also force a flush, but that needs
to be verified as well.

So this is just for a trivial Javadoc change.
