Subject [jira] [Issue Comment Edited] (HBASE-5584) Coprocessor hooks can be called in the respective handlers
Date Wed, 21 Mar 2012 18:27:43 GMT

----------------------------------------------------------------

In the patch I don't see where the unit test waits sufficiently for the async operation to
complete. It's going to be racy. Use a CountDownLatch or similar to wait in the test for the
handler?

Edit: Ok, didn't refresh this page before commenting. Consider that a sleep may not be the
best option, you don't eliminate a race against async activity, just hope to get out in front
of it by waiting for a while.

> Following points can be changed w.r.t to coprocessors
> -> Call preCreate, postCreate, preEnable, postEnable, etc. in their respective handlers
> -> Currently it is called in the HMaster thus making the postApis async w.r.t the
handlers
> -> Similar is the case with the balancer.
> with current behaviour once we are in the postEnable(for eg) we any way need to wait
for the main enable handler to 
> be completed.
> We should ensure that we dont wait in the main thread so again we need to spawn a thread
and wait on that.
> On the other hand if the pre and post api is called on the handlers then only that handler
thread will be
> used in the pre/post apis
> If the above said plan is ok i can prepare a patch for all such related changes.
