Subject [jira] [Commented] (HBASE-8015) Support for Namespaces
Date Fri, 10 May 2013 15:43:16 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-8015?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13654551#comment-13654551

Francis Liu commented on HBASE-8015:

It seems we've come to a consensus on the upgrade approach.

In essence it'll do the following:

- Tables without '.' will be moved into the default namespace.
- Tables with '.' will be move into new namespaces
  - namespaces will be delimited by the last '.' in the table name
   ie org.apache.hbase.MyTable, namespace = org.apache.hbase
- In both cases the oldTableName is the same as the fullTableName
- all existing apis and cli commands will be expecting full table names unless explicitly
- a RenameTable tool will be provided to rename offline tables

So I'll start implementing it.

Discussion is here:
