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

             Summary: [WINDOWS] Catalog table .META. violates the naming convention in Window
OS
                 Key: HBASE-6818
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-6818
             Project: HBase
          Issue Type: Sub-task
            Reporter: Enis Soztutar


There are two catalog tables in HBase, ROOT and .META., whose representitives in Windows file
system are folders. However, the name of .META. table violates the naming convention in Windows,
as Windows doesn't support any file/directory whose name ending with a period '.'.
The following are the related description from msdn.microsoft.com for naming convention for
Windows :
Do not end a file or directory name with a space or a period. Although the underlying file
system may support such names, the Windows shell and user interface does not. However, it
is acceptable to specify a period as the first character of a name. For example, ".temp".

Note that this does not affect hdfs, but only RawLocalFileSystem, and single-node local hbase
clusters.
