Subject [jira] [Commented] (HBASE-643) Rename tables
Date Tue, 21 Aug 2012 19:01:40 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-643?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13438946#comment-13438946

stack commented on HBASE-643:

@Sameer I don't think so.  The rename script was recently removed because it had rotted; it
had not been updated to match changed API.  We really need something like ids for tables,
something like what Keith talks of in the above so a rename is a near-costless operations
(as opposed to the rewrite of .META. and HDFS dir name that the rename script used do).

> It would be nice to be able to rename tables, if this is possible.  Some of our internal
users are doing things like: upload table mytable -> realize they screwed up -> upload
table mytable_2 -> decide mytable_2 looks better -> have to go on using mytable_2 instead
of originally desired table name.
