Subject [jira] [Commented] (HBASE-9299) Generate the protobuf classes with hadoop-maven-plugin
Date Thu, 22 Aug 2013 15:22:52 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-9299?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13747587#comment-13747587

stack commented on HBASE-9299:

One issue to consider is that our code has actually moved to depend on pb2.5.  We make use
of the new PARSER define and a few APIs not in 2.4.1.

Doc on how to generate is in hbase-protocol/src/main/protos/README.txt.  Is it too deeply
buried [~echarles]?  We should surface it more?  Into the pom?

Thanks for looking into this [~echarles]

> For now, the protobuf classes are generated once by a dev, and put in src/main/resouce.

> This allows the other dev to not have the correct protoc version available on their machine.
However, when a dev wants to modify the protoc messages, he has to know how to generate the
classes. This could be documented...
> Another approach would be to put a harder requirement on the hbase developers (protoc
available) and let the hadoop-maven-plugin (http://central.maven.org/maven2/org/apache/hadoop/hadoop-maven-plugins/2.0.5-alpha)
to do the work (I have bad experience with other maven protobuf plugins, the hadoop one works
just out of the box).
> I don't think asking to install protoc to build hbase is so difficult, but that's an
additional step between the dev and the artifcat.
> The advantage would be to allow to have different protobuf versions for different hbase
distributions (perfectly possible but quite theorical).
> So
> option 1: We are happy to keep the classes in src/main/java
> option 2: We want to move to hadoop-maven-plugin 
> option 3: I may be short of idea... any other input?
