Subject [jira] [Commented] (HBASE-1015) pure C and C++ client libraries
Date Sat, 28 Jul 2012 22:28:35 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-1015?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13424447#comment-13424447

Andrew Purtell commented on HBASE-1015:
---------------------------------------

[~mikhail] Perhaps someone more versed in Thrift and its C++ language support in particular
could say, but can we plug in Thrift's TSasl{Client,Server}Transport here for authenticated
opens and optional wire encryption?

> If via HBASE-794 first class support for talking via Thrift directly to HMaster and HRS
is available, then pure C and C++ client libraries are possible. 
> The C client library would wrap a Thrift core. 
> The C++ client library can provide a class hierarchy quite close to o.a.h.h.client and,
ideally, identical semantics. It  should be just a wrapper around the C API, for economy.
> Internally to my employer there is a lot of resistance to HBase because many dev teams
have a strong C/C++ bias. The real issue however is really client side integration, not a
fundamental objection. (What runs server side and how it is managed is a secondary consideration.)
