Subject [jira] [Commented] (HBASE-5335) Dynamic Schema Configurations
Date Fri, 06 Apr 2012 19:29:23 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-5335?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13248634#comment-13248634
] 

Nicolas Spiegelberg commented on HBASE-5335:
--------------------------------------------

Status update
1. Fixing the 3 unit test failures, caused by new split code between 89fb -> trunk.  
2. Fixed some ruby display/parsing problems found during manual testing.  We need a way to
unit test the Ruby shell code easily.  
3. Taking the time to fix an issue that constantly annoys me: you should be able to run 'describe
TABLE', copy the output, and paste it directly into 'create' or 'alter'

> Currently, the ability for a core developer to add per-table & per-CF configuration
settings is very heavyweight.  You need to add a reserved keyword all the way up the stack
& you have to support this variable long-term if you're going to expose it explicitly
to the user.  This has ended up with using Configuration.get() a lot because it is lightweight
and you can tweak settings while you're trying to understand system behavior [since there
are many config params that may never need to be tuned].  We need to add the ability to put
& read arbitrary KV settings in the HBase schema.  Combined with online schema change,
this will allow us to safely iterate on configuration settings.
