Subject [jira] [Commented] (HBASE-8275) Tool to test binary compatibility
Date Fri, 05 Apr 2013 01:01:13 GMT

Lars Hofhansl commented on HBASE-8275:
--------------------------------------

I suppose each time you add a new public method you have to add it to the gold file too. Same
with newly added classes that we want to check this way.

> Stack and I were discussing of ways to make binary compatibility easier to test than
doing it completely by hand.
> One idea would be to have a tool that uses reflection to generate code that calls all
the public methods from a list of classes. You would then compile this code against the current
version you are on, then try it out with different HBase jars without recompiling.
