Subject [jira] [Commented] (HBASE-7278) Some bugs of HTableDesciptor
Date Fri, 24 May 2013 08:24:21 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-7278?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13666100#comment-13666100
] 

samar commented on HBASE-7278:
------------------------------

can we create a seperate jira to remove setName(byte[] name)? 

isLegalTableName() since its returning what is passed we can name it something like void validateTableName(),
where we would not expect anything in return but will do all the checks as already implemented

> The implementation is against the contract of throwing NullPointerException.
> I'm not sure the contract is wrong or the implementation is wrong.
> Also the contract of throwing IllegalArgumentException is a little different from the
actual implementation, and in general we must actually call this method and catch IllegalArgumentException
in order to know whether the given name can be used as a table name.
> I feel HTableDescriptor allows itself to be in invalid states, and I cannot fix the class
well.
> I think we should start to remove implementing WritableComparable, but it might greatly
break the compatibility.
