Subject [jira] [Commented] (HBASE-8273) HColumnDescriptor setters should return void
Date Sat, 06 Apr 2013 14:01:16 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-8273?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13624412#comment-13624412

Ted Yu commented on HBASE-8273:

I logged this JIRA with an attempt to solve the binary compatibility issue.

After further investigation, it turns out binary compatibility can be achieved between 0.92.3
and 0.94.7 in the following way:
1. introduce an interface, called X e.g., in 0.92(.3) with the setters for HColumnDescriptor
2. introduce an interface, called Y e.g., in 0.94(.7) with the setters for HColumnDescriptor
where build pattern is supported
3. write Java assembly code in 0.94(.7) for HColumnDescriptor supporting both interfaces

Client code does not need reflection to use those methods.

mean binary compatibility?'
> Synopsis from that thread:
> HBASE-5357 "Use builder pattern in HColumnDescriptor" changed the
> method signatures by changing "void" to "HColumnDescriptor" so it' not
> the same methods anymore.
> if you invoke setters
> on HColumnDescriptor as you'll get:
> java.lang.NoSuchMethodError:
> org.apache.hadoop.hbase.HColumnDescriptor.setMaxVersions(I)V
