Subject [jira] [Commented] (HBASE-4966) Put/Delete values cannot be tested with MRUnit
Date Fri, 08 Feb 2013 17:23:14 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-4966?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13574638#comment-13574638

Nicholas Telford commented on HBASE-4966:

I abandoned this as the proposed changes were far too invasive. There are Lists and Maps all
over the place that rely on this behaviour. It really didn't seem worth the risk of introducing
a regression just to get MRUnit working.

Instead, we're just moving away from use-cases that involve MapReduce on HBase. I'm happy
to have this issue closed "won't fix".

>                 Key: HBASE-4966
>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-4966
>             Project: HBase
>          Issue Type: Bug
>          Components: Client, mapreduce
>    Affects Versions: 0.90.4
>            Reporter: Nicholas Telford
>            Assignee: Nicholas Telford
>            Priority: Minor
> When using the IdentityTableReducer, which expects input values of either a Put or Delete
object, testing with MRUnit the Mapper with MRUnit is not possible because neither Put nor
Delete implement equals().
> We should implement equals() on both such that equality means:
> * Both objects are of the same class (in this case, Put or Delete)
> * Both objects are for the same key.
> * Both objects contain an equal set of KeyValues (applicable only to Put)
> KeyValue.equals() appears to already be implemented, but only checks for equality of
row key, column family and column qualifier - two KeyValues can be considered "equal" if they
contain different values. This won't work for testing.
> Instead, the Put.equals() and Delete.equals() implementations should do a "deep" equality
check on their KeyValues, like this:
> {code:java}
> myKv.equals(theirKv) && Bytes.equals(myKv.getValue(), theirKv.getValue());
> {code}
> NOTE: This would impact any code that relies on the existing "identity" implementation
of Put.equals() and Delete.equals(), therefore cannot be guaranteed to be backwards-compatible.
