Subject Re: Stopping datanode and namenode

Thats sounds cool.  Sounds like something that would be great in the  
examples directory.  Then we could put some regressions in place to  
make sure we don't break it as we uplevel things too.

Might it make more sense to run the datanode as a distinct process  
and use the client in your servelet?  I'm no expert on web farms,  
just curious.
