Subject [jira] [Commented] (ZOOKEEPER-761) Remove *synchronous* calls from the *single-threaded* C clieant API, since they are documented not to work

Flavio Junqueira commented on ZOOKEEPER-761:

Hmm, the github stuff is also not running QA, right?

>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/ZOOKEEPER-761
>             Project: ZooKeeper
>          Issue Type: Improvement
>          Components: c client
>    Affects Versions: 3.1.1, 3.2.2
>         Environment: RHEL 4u8 (Linux).  The issue is not OS-specific though.
>            Reporter: Jozef Hatala
>            Assignee: Benjamin Reed
>            Priority: Minor
>             Fix For: 3.5.3, 3.6.0
>         Attachments: fix-sync-apis-in-st-adaptor.patch, fix-sync-apis-in-st-adaptor.v2.patch
> Since the synchronous calls are [known|http://hadoop.apache.org/zookeeper/docs/current/zookeeperProgrammers.html#Using+the+C+Client]
to be unimplemented in the single threaded version of the client library libzookeeper_st.so,
I believe that it would be helpful towards users of the library if that information was also
obvious from the header file.
> Anecdotally more than one of us here made the mistake of starting by using the synchronous
calls with the single-threaded library, and we found ourselves debugging it.  An early warning
would have been greatly appreciated.
> 1. Could you please add warnings to the doxygen blocks of all synchronous calls saying
that they are not available in the single-threaded API.  This cannot be safely done with {{#ifdef
THREADED}}, obviously, because the same header file is included whichever client library implementation
one is compiling for.
> 2. Could you please bracket the implementation of all synchronous calls in zookeeper.c
with {{#ifdef THREADED}} and {{#endif}}, so that those symbols are not present in libzookeeper_st.so?
