Subject [jira] [Commented] (HBASE-9153) Create a deprecation policy enforcement check
Date Thu, 05 Sep 2013 19:13:52 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-9153?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13759332#comment-13759332

Aleksandr Shulman commented on HBASE-9153:
------------------------------------------

Hi [~ndimiduk], I haven't attached the patch yet. I will do so shortly.

You're correct in that the checkin does not do any enforcement, nor does it have an automatic
way to detect incompatible changes. These are potential next steps.

Other next steps:
1. Have JDiff only examine a specific set of classes/packagages that are client-facing.
2. Have it raise an alert anytime something incompatible is introduced. 
2a. Have it mute known incompatibilities
3. Add it as a pre-checkin hook

Finally, I recall you had a question about text format. So far I haven't found a way to generate
a text-only format. It would definitely be useful for parsing and so forth!

> We've had a few issues now where we've removed API's without deprecating or deprecating
in the late release.  (HBASE-9142, HBASE-9093)  We should just have a tool that enforces our
api deprecation policy as a release time check or as a precommit check.
