Subject [jira] [Commented] (HBASE-4403) Adopt interface stability/audience classifications from Hadoop
Date Fri, 17 Feb 2012 23:26:00 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-4403?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13210665#comment-13210665
] 

Enis Soztutar commented on HBASE-4403:
--------------------------------------

bq. Do we classify those classes in test folder? Should we move them to the main folder?
I'd say let's just classify the class, and deal with moving it in HBASE-4336. We are already
releasing hbase-tests artifact which is consumed by downstream projects. Maybe we can do hbase-minicluster,
and hbase-test modules, and mark everything public in minicluster. Then hbase-tests will inherently
become private. wdyt?

> 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.
