             Summary: Provide way for the core flow to know whether CP implemented each of
the hooks
                 Key: HBASE-18898
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-18898
             Project: HBase
          Issue Type: Improvement
            Reporter: Anoop Sam John


This came as a discussion topic at the tale of HBASE-17732
Can we have a way in the code (before trying to call the hook) to know whether the user has
implemented one particular hook or not? eg: On write related hooks only prePut() might be
what the user CP implemented. All others are just dummy impl from the interface. Can we have
a way for the core code to know this and avoid the call to other dummy hooks fully? Some times
we do some processing for just calling CP hooks (Say we have to make a POJO out of PB object
for calling) and if the user CP not impl this hook, we can avoid this extra work fully. The
pain of this will be more when we have to later deprecate one hook and add new. So the dummy
impl in new hook has to call the old one and that might be doing some extra work normally.
If the CP f/w itself is having a way to tell this, the core code can make use. What am expecting
is some thing like in PB way where we can call 
CPObject.hasPreXXXX(), then CPObject. preXXXX ().. Should not like asking users to impl this
extra ugly thing. When the CP instance is loaded in the RS/HM, that object will be having
this info also.
