Subject [jira] [Commented] (HBASE-1015) pure C and C++ client libraries
Date Fri, 10 Jan 2014 13:38:04 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-1015?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13867787#comment-13867787

Cosmin Lehene commented on HBASE-1015:
--------------------------------------

HBASE-9977 suggests a C++ async client and C sync/async wrappers. 
Given that HBase talks protobuf natively. Is a native wrapper around Thrift still a goal?

>                 Key: HBASE-1015
>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-1015
>             Project: HBase
>          Issue Type: New Feature
>          Components: Client
>    Affects Versions: 0.20.6
>            Reporter: Andrew Purtell
>            Priority: Minor

> If via HBASE-794 first class support for talking via Thrift directly to HMaster and HRS
is available, then pure C and C++ client libraries are possible. 
> The C client library would wrap a Thrift core. 
> The C++ client library can provide a class hierarchy quite close to o.a.h.h.client and,
ideally, identical semantics. It  should be just a wrapper around the C API, for economy.
> Internally to my employer there is a lot of resistance to HBase because many dev teams
have a strong C/C++ bias. The real issue however is really client side integration, not a
fundamental objection. (What runs server side and how it is managed is a secondary consideration.)
