Subject [jira] [Commented] (THRIFT-4448) Golang: do something with context.Context
Date Tue, 09 Jan 2018 18:14:00 GMT


ASF GitHub Bot commented on THRIFT-4448:

Github user dcelasun commented on the issue:
    When context support was added, significant effort went into keeping 1.7 compatibility
so I think it would be great if we could maintain that support.
    On the other hand, this patch can go into 0.12 at the earliest and by that time 1.7 will
be ancient. I haven't reviewed the patch yet, but if you'd like to drop compatibility, please
do so across the codebase (so no more `x/net/context` anywhere).

> PR Here:
> This patch wires through {{context.Context}} such that it can be used in in {{http.Request}}'s
{{WithContext}} method. This allows Thrift HTTP requests to canceled or timed out via the
> This patch breaks support for go<1.7 so it's not ready to ship, but I'm hoping to
get some direction on this. When does Thrift expect to drop support of go1.7? It looks like
the current solution is to duplicate files that need to use {{}} and
add a {{// +build !go1.7}} but duplication seems unsustainable as the {{context}} package
is imported more places.
> Go 1.7 was released 15 August 2016. Given Golang has had significant performance improvements
in most dot releases, I suspect most production services stay reasonably up to date. Here
at Periscope/Twitter we're on go1.9.1, and we're a fairly large organization.
