Prasad Mujumdar commented on HIVE-6061:

HiveServer2 IDL already uses request/response structures.

> Metastore Thrift APIs currently use normal method signatures (e.g. int foo(string bar,
double baz)); this is problematic in Thrift because the APIs cannot be evolved without breaking
compat; and weird names have to be invented because overloading is not supported either.
> An easy solution to this is to have methods in the form of FooResponse foo(FooRequest
req); the structures can then be evolved easily.
> This may apply also to other Thrift APIs, I have not checked.
> This is a brainstorming JIRA for the transformations. Obviously this will either double
the API size, or cause massive backward incompatibility. 
> Maybe we can do 1-2 releases with both APIs, marking the old ones deprecated in some
form, and then remove them?
