Subject [jira] [Created] (HBASE-7411) Use Netflix's Curator zookeeper library
Date Thu, 20 Dec 2012 22:33:13 GMT
Enis Soztutar created HBASE-7411:

             Summary: Use Netflix's Curator zookeeper library
                 Key: HBASE-7411
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-7411
             Project: HBase
          Issue Type: New Feature
          Components: Zookeeper
    Affects Versions: 0.96.0
            Reporter: Enis Soztutar
            Assignee: Enis Soztutar

We have mentioned using the Curator library (https://github.com/Netflix/curator) elsewhere
but we can continue the discussion in this.  

The advantages for the curator lib over ours are the recipes. We have very similar retrying
mechanism, and we don't need much of the nice client-API layer. 
We also have similar Listener interface, etc. 

I think we can decide on one of the following options: 
1. Do not depend on curator. We have some of the recipes, and some custom recipes (ZKAssign,
Leader election, etc already working, locks in HBASE-5991, etc). We can also copy / fork some
code from there.
2. Replace all of our zk usage / connection management to curator. We may keep the current
set of API's as a thin wrapper. 
3. Use our own connection management / retry logic, and build a custom CuratorFramework implementation
for the curator recipes. This will keep the current zk logic/code intact, and allow us to
use curator-recipes as we see fit. 
4. Allow both curator and our zk layer to manage the connection. We will still have 1 connection,
but 2 abstraction layers sharing it. This is the easiest to implement, but a freak show? 

I have a patch for 4, and now prototyping 2 or 3 whichever will be less painful.
