Date Fri, 21 Jun 2013 02:38:20 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-2678?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13689981#comment-13689981

Francis Liu commented on HBASE-2678:

Reviving this jira. Can we just add version to the path? ie v1/ v2/? This is the standard
we use, oozie uses the same scheme as well.

> As mentioned in HBASE-2563, we should deprecate all uses of _cell_ in the API and replace
with new APIs that use _value_ instead. So we need a way to version the REST interface, to
provide an updated API while maintaining access to the deprecated one until the next major
revision. However, something like this I consider wrong:
> {{/path/to/v1/resource}}
> and also:
> {{/v2/path/to/resource}}
> because the resource is the same regardless of the representation change. REST makes
a distinction between the representation and the resource using media types. 
> Currently Stargate supports the following encodings:
> * {{text/plain}}  (in some cases)
> * binary: {{application/octet-stream}} (freeform, no schema change needed)
> * XML: {{text/xml}}
> * JSON: {{application/json}}
> * protobufs: {{application/x-protobuf}}
> We can add Avro encoding support in HBASE-2557 with the new representation as {{application/x-avro-binary}}
immediately. For XML, JSON, and protobuf encoding, we can support new representations using
the following new media types in the current version:
> * XML: {{application/vnd.hbase+xml}}
> * JSON: {{application/vnd.hbase+json}}
> * protobufs: {{application/vnd.hbase+protobuf}}
> * and for sake of consistency: {{application/vnd.hbase+avro}}
> and then in the next major version recognize both MIME types but return the same (newer)
