Srikanth Srungarapu commented on HBASE-14045:
---------------------------------------------

Attached is the compatibility report for differences between 0.9.0 and 0.9.2 jars. The relevant
classes being used by our Thrift gateway mainly are {{TBinaryProtocol}}, {{TCompactProtocol}}
and {{TThreadedSelectorServer}}, but none of the changes mentioned in compatibility report
are going to make impact us.

> Currently, HBase is using Thrift 0.9.0 version, with the latest  version being 0.9.2.
Currently, the HBase Thrift gateway is vulnerable to crashes due to THRIFT-2660 when used
with default transport and the workaround for this problem is switching to framed transport.
Unfortunately, the recently added impersonation support \[1\] doesn't work with framed transport
leaving thrift gateway using this feature susceptible to crashes.  Updating thrift version
to 0.9.2 will help us in mitigating this problem. Given that security is one of key requirements
for the production clusters, it would be good to ensure our users that security features in
thrift gateway can be used without any major concerns. Aside this, there are also some nice
fixes pertaining to  leaky resources in 0.9.2 like \[2\] and \[3\].
> As far compatibility guarantees are concerned, thrift assures 100% wire compatibility.
However, it is my understanding that there were some minor additions (new API) in 0.9.2 \[4\]
which won't work in 0.9.0, but that won't affect us since we are not using those features.
And I tried running test suite and did manual testing with thrift version set to 0.9.2 and
things are running smoothly. If there are no objections to this change, I would be more than
happy to file a jira and follow this up.
