-Single parameter HTable constructors gone in 0.94 without warning
Jean-Daniel Cryans 2012-08-24, 22:42
While moving to 0.94 we encountered the problem that the HTable
constructors that only took the table name were removed by
Ted mentioned in a review that these constructors should be marked as
deprecated in 0.92 but it was never done.
Basically, we removed public constructor methods from HTable without notice.
I opened https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-6661 to fix that.
In the future we need to be more careful when changing user-facing
APIs, specifically for 0.94 this is the second time we needed to add
work arounds post-upgrade.
