Subject [jira] [Commented] (HBASE-8361) Bulk load and other utilities should not create tables for user
Date Thu, 18 Apr 2013 05:03:15 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-8361?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13634851#comment-13634851

Jieshan Bean commented on HBASE-8361:
-------------------------------------

bq.The tools should error when the destination table does not exist.

+1. Such tools should not create a table silently which may not be the expected table.

> {{LoadIncrementalHFiles}} and {{ImportTsv}} will create a table with the default setting
when the target table does not exist. I think this is an anti-feature. Neither tool provide
a mechanism for the user to configure the creation parameters of that table, resulting in
a new table with the default settings. I think it is unlikely that the default settings are
what the user actually wants. In the event of a table-name typo, that means data is silently
loaded into the wrong place. The tools should error when the destination table does not exist.
