Subject [jira] [Commented] (HBASE-4032) HBASE-451 improperly breaks public API HRegionInfo#getTableDesc
Date Thu, 28 Jul 2011 04:09:09 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-4032?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13072168#comment-13072168
] 

Ted Yu commented on HBASE-4032:
-------------------------------

The most common usage of HRegionInfo#getTableDesc is hri.getTableDesc().getNameAsString()
which has equivalent in TRUNK already.
I think HRegionInfo#getTableDesc returning null is a fail-fast approach so that the caller
knows alternative should be sought. This is better than a temporary solution which would cause
performance issue.

> After HBASE-451, HRegionInfo#getTableDesc has been modified to always return {{null}}.

> One immediate effect is broken unit tests.
> That aside, it is not in the spirit of deprecation to actually break the method until
after the deprecation cycle, it's a bug.
