Subject [jira] [Commented] (HBASE-7797) Use consistent package name
Date Mon, 11 Feb 2013 05:25:13 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-7797?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13575622#comment-13575622

Enis Soztutar commented on HBASE-7797:
--------------------------------------

I can see the intention, but Cell is a small part of the overall client API. Is there a plan
to gradually move the other parts of the API to the new namespace, or rewrite v2 APIs? If
not, then we might as well end up with 2 namespaces for years, which I am trying to avoid.
This looks like the mapred vs mapreduce set of APIs, but the difference is that mapreduce
mostly replaces the whole mapred namespace, whereas Cell is not. 
Having said that, if we plan to migrate filters, coprocessors, htable, etc for the new Cell
interface and keep the BC versions in place we might as well document it and close this one
as invalid.

> This has been discussed here: http://search-hadoop.com/m/bXxiV1MGsYi2. 
> We should not release 0.96 with two namespaces. This will cause further pain and confusion
in the future (like log4j configuration, greping logs, etc). 
> As much as I like it, I don't see us going o.a.hbase namespace, so let's move the Cell,
and prefix tree classes to o.a.hadoop.hbase.
