Subject [jira] [Commented] (HBASE-11875) Referencing external package com/google/protobuf/ inside hbase-protcol module won't work in OSGI environment
Date Tue, 02 Sep 2014 06:12:21 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-11875?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=14117925#comment-14117925

ayache khettar commented on HBASE-11875:

It doesn't offend, and that's what I have implemented as workaround see below . Sorry for
quickly jumping into suggestion that composition would solve the problem, still LiteralByteString
is package protected you can't use composition either. How about a new module in Hbase project:
google-protobuf-util which exposes only package: com.google.protobuf? And you will have it
as dependency for any modules which needs to use the ByteStringer class.

 static {
    try {
      HBaseZeroCopyByteString.wrap(new byte [0]);
    } catch (Throwable iae) {
      LOG.debug("Failed to classload HBaseZeroCopyByteString: " + iae.toString());

> Hi
> HbaseZeroCopyByteString class isn't accessible in OSGI based environment. The reason
is that it ends up in a separate route package within an OSGI bundle. As such the class isn't
viewable by the classLoader.
> I understand that the hbase-module isn't an osgi bundle, but there is another project
which makes use of this module to generate an osgi bundle for the OSGI container: https://github.com/apache/servicemix4-bundles/tree/trunk/hbase-0.98.0-hadoop2.
If you get hold of the binary or source artefact from maven, unzip the jar and you will see
the structure of the project:
> com/google/ (classes defined in this package are not visible by the classLoader).
> org/apache/hbase
> I understand the reason of having a foreign package, because  LiteralByteString is package
protected. It would be nice to work out another way of extending google protobuf classes.
I would recommend going for composition as opposed to inheritance that will solve the problem.
