      Description

      Numerous prior discussions have occurred, expressing a desire to deprecate (deprecate is not the same as remove) mock, so we can properly communicate its current status as a "dying" (poorly maintained, not kept up-to-date, lacking features) component of Accumulo. Some interest has been expressed in keeping it around, but no work has been put in to it to fix it's numerous divergences from the behavior of "real" Accumulo, add its missing features, or to improve its API.

      The task here is to:

      • Cease and desist using mock in our tests (replacing it with MAC, EasyMock, etc., as appropriate)
      • Mark mock @Deprecated until it is eventually removed in a major release

      Further discussion, if necessary, can be held later regarding its actual removal.
