Subject [jira] [Commented] (HBASE-18042) Client Compatibility breaks between versions 1.2 and 1.3
Date Mon, 15 May 2017 20:39:05 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-18042?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=16011284#comment-16011284

Andrew Purtell commented on HBASE-18042:
----------------------------------------

We are not supposed to break wire compatibility in minor versions. This is arguable. The protobuf
change is compatible in the strictest sense in that mismatched versions can still parse messages.
The fact that semantics rely on a new field not present in older versions means not really.

> OpenTSDB uses AsyncHBase as its client, rather than using the traditional HBase Client.
From version 1.2 to 1.3, the {{ClientProtos}} have been changed. Newer fields are added to
{{ScanResponse}} proto.
> For a typical Scan request in 1.2, would require caller to make an OpenScanner Request,
GetNextRows Request and a CloseScanner Request, based on {{more_rows}} boolean field in the
{{ScanResponse}} proto.
> However, from 1.3, new parameter {{more_results_in_region}} was added, which limits the
results per region. Therefore the client has to now manage sending all the requests for each
region. Further more, if the results are exhausted from a particular region, the {{ScanResponse}}
will set {{more_results_in_region}} to false, but {{more_results}} can still be true. Whenever
the former is set to false, the {{RegionScanner}} will also be closed. 
> OpenTSDB makes an OpenScanner Request and receives all its results in the first {{ScanResponse}}
itself, thus creating a condition as described in above paragraph. Since {{more_rows}} is
true, it will proceed to send next request at which point the {{RSRpcServices}} will throw
{{UnknownScannerException}}. The protobuf client compatibility is maintained but expected
behavior is modified.
