Subject [jira] [Commented] (HADOOP-8152) Expand public APIs for security library classes
Date Thu, 19 Apr 2012 01:50:41 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-8152?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13257156#comment-13257156
] 

Eli Collins commented on HADOOP-8152:
-------------------------------------

I agree the UGI methods should be annotated public since, per Harsh, we provide user-facing
documentation on how to use them. I would extend the @InterfaceAudience for UGI to include
HBase, Hive and Oozie since these are "closely related projects" that use UGI that we don't
want to break, or alternatively add a class-level comment to this effect so people understand
why we're calling out specific methods as public in a limited private class. I agree w/ the
overall approach, and otherwise the patch looks good to me.

> Currently projects like Hive and HBase use UserGroupInformation and SecurityUtil methods.
Both of these classes are marked LimitedPrivate(HDFS,MR) but should probably be marked more
generally public.
