Kylin Branches for Different HBase Versions
Because HBase API diverges based on versions and vendors, different code branches have to be maintained for different HBase versions.
The branching design is
masterbranch compiles with HBase 0.98, and is also the main branch for development. All bug fixes and new features commits to
master-hbase1.xbranch compiles with HBase 1.x. This branch is created by applying one patch on top of
master. In other word,
a patch to support HBase 1.x.
- Similarly, there is
a patch to support CDH 5.7.
- No code changes should happen on
master-cdh5.7directly (apart from the last commit on the branch that adapts HBase calls).
There is a script helps to keep these branches in sync:
