Subject [jira] [Commented] (HBASE-16044) Fix 'hbase shell' output parsing in bash scripts
Date Thu, 23 Jun 2016 22:50:16 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-16044?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=15347364#comment-15347364

Appy commented on HBASE-16044:

Since these changes are only in master and branch-1, i think it keeps our operational compat
promise. [~stack], you still think we should change the format back? Or does the below plan
sounds good?

At some point, we might want to define our guidelines more strictly, something like the following:
(based on discussion with Sean)
- non-interactive output: will keep operational compatibility across maintenance release.
From our perspective, it'll basically dump the output from HBaseAdmin directly. (So in a way,
it'll be like a admin client for shell).
- interactive output: free-form and can change any time. The only good reason for this is,
formatted shell output is like text-UI, and UI are not good for programatic interface. And
think about it, what if we want to add a christmas easter egg in 2.0 :-).

> In some of our bash scripts we are piping command in hbase shell and then parsing response
to define variables.  Since 'hbase shell' output format is changed we are picking wrong values
from output Here is example form gracful_stop.sh:
> {code}
> HBASE_BALANCER_STATE=$(echo 'balance_switch false' | "$bin"/hbase --config "${HBASE_CONF_DIR}"
shell | tail -3 | head -1)
> {code}
> this will return "balance_switch true" instead of previous balancer  state.
