Subject [jira] [Commented] (HBASE-12435) The exists method on the HTable-class changes the passed-in Get-instance
Date Thu, 06 Nov 2014 11:43:33 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-12435?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=14200098#comment-14200098

GK Ephorus commented on HBASE-12435:

The cloning is not really deep. And if it was deep, it would be slow/expensive. I attached
a patch to store and restore the old value of the checkExistenceOnly-property.

>         Environment: Cloudera Hadoop HBase 5.2.0: 0.98.6.?
>            Reporter: GK Ephorus

> Running an HTable.get right after using HTable.exists using the same instance of a Get-object
yields no results.
> Up on inspection of the code we found that the HTable.exists changes the passed-in Get-object.
It changes the property 'checkExistenceOnly' to true which makes the passed-in Get-object
useless for subsequent HTable.get calls.
> My suggestion is either:
> * indicate this behaviour in the documentation/javadoc
> * store the old value of the 'checkExistenceOnly' and restore it using try-finally.
