Subject [jira] [Commented] (HBASE-7910) Dont use reflection for security
Date Fri, 22 Feb 2013 23:02:13 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-7910?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13584791#comment-13584791
] 

Gary Helmling commented on HBASE-7910:
--------------------------------------

Agree with getting rid of the reflection, so long as we keep the {{User}} class as a wrapper
around {{UserGroupInformation}} to protect ourselves from future changes.  This usage is deeply
engrained enough in the HBase code that I think having our own abstraction makes sense.

> security.User class uses reflection so that HBase can work with older Hadoop's not having
security. Now that we require 1.x, or 0.23 or 2.x, all Hadoop versions have security code.
We can get rid of most of the User class.
