Subject [jira] [Commented] (HBASE-1989) Admin (et al.) not accurate with Column vs. Column-Family usage
Date Thu, 30 Apr 2015 08:22:06 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-1989?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=14521114#comment-14521114

Lars Francke commented on HBASE-1989:

I'd like to work on this again because the naming is still confusing. I'll reopen and attach
a patch that'll deprecate the "old" versions in 2.0.0 so they can be removed in 3.0.0.

> Consider the classes Admin and HColumnDescriptor.
> HColumnDescriptor is really referring to a "column family" and not a "column" (i.e.,
> Likewise, in Admin there is a method called "addColumn" that takes an HColumnDescriptor
> I labeled this a bug in the sense that it produces conceptual confusion because there
is a big difference between a column and column-family in HBase and these terms should be
used consistently.  The code works, though.
