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

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-8275?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13623227#comment-13623227

Jean-Marc Spaggiari commented on HBASE-8275:
--------------------------------------------

Hum. We might want to find a way to have that done automatically. Because if someone is missing
one, we might miss one issue in a later release if it's removed. Maybe we can extract the
list each time we are doing a release and submit it as a baseline for the next release compability
tests?

> 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.
