[jira] [Created] (HBASE-18188) [C++] Fix Handling do not retry exceptions

JIRA jira@apache.org
Enis Soztutar created HBASE-18188:

             Summary: [C++] Fix Handling do not retry exceptions
                 Key: HBASE-18188
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-18188
             Project: HBase
          Issue Type: Sub-task
            Reporter: Enis Soztutar
            Assignee: Enis Soztutar

Needed for HBASE-18061 and others.

Java client relies on the exception hierarchy for DoNotRetryExceptions, which there is 40+ subtypes. The exceptions from the server side are rethrown in the client side (ConnectionUtils.translateException, etc) and the rest of the code deals with do-not-retry information by catching DoNotRetryIOException's (thus relying on exception hierarchy).

This of course does not work on the C++ side, since we lack the info for the java class types. In case the exception happens in the RPC response, the server puts the do_not_retry information as a field in PB (see ExceptionResponse::do_not_retry PB message). However, in other settings, we just serialize the exception without do_not_retry information (see ResultOrException PB message). In some other settings, we can raise exceptions from the client-side (for example when table cannot be found in meta).

We need a strategy to handle do-not-retry information uniformly, no matter they are coming from client side or server side.
