Subject [jira] [Commented] (HBASE-4403) Adopt interface stability/audience classifications from Hadoop
Date Thu, 16 Feb 2012 21:10:59 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-4403?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13209740#comment-13209740
] 

Todd Lipcon commented on HBASE-4403:
------------------------------------

Oh, I should add to the above that we're allowed to *add* APIs to an API even if it's marked
Stable. We just can't break old APIs.

> As HBase gets more widely used, we need to be more explicit about which APIs are stable
and not expected to break between versions, which APIs are still evolving, etc. We also have
many public classes that are really internal to the RS or Master and not meant to be used
by users. Hadoop has adopted a classification scheme for audience (public, private, or limited-private)
as well as stability (stable, evolving, unstable). I think we should copy these annotations
to HBase and start to classify our public classes.
