Subject [jira] [Commented] (HBASE-7621) REST client (RemoteHTable) doesn't support binary row keys
Date Fri, 19 Aug 2016 17:57:20 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-7621?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=15428545#comment-15428545
] 

Andrew Purtell commented on HBASE-7621:
---------------------------------------

This change looks fine to commit only to master branch, as it's an incompatible change. I'd
like us to consider moving RemoteHTable out of src/main/ to src/test/ but it has some users
clearly so for now let's support it as we normally would. 

+1, will commit shortly

> The REST server doesn't seem to support using binary (MD5 for example) row keys. I believe
the root cause of this is the use of Bytes.toBytes() in the RowSpec.parseRowKeys() method.
Based on the use of Bytes.toStringBinary() within RemoteHTable.buildRowSpec(), I believe the
converse function Bytes.toBytesBinary() should be used for row key parsing in RowSpec.parseRowKeys().
> I also noticed that the RemoteHTable.buildRowSpec() method isn't URL encoding the row
key, which is a mismatch to the logic in RowSpec.parseRowKeys() which performs URL decoding
for both the start and stop row keys.
