>             Project: Hadoop
>          Issue Type: Improvement
>          Components: fs
>            Reporter: Doug Cutting

>         Attachments: uri.patch, uri2.patch, uri3.patch, uri4.patch, uri5.patch
> The following changes are proposed:
> 1. Add a factory/registry of FileSystem implementations.  Given a protocol, hostname
and port, it should be possible to get a FileSystem implementation.
> 2. Path's constructor should accept URI-formatted strings & a configuration.
> 3. A new Path method should be added: FileSystem.getFileSystem().  This returns the filesystem
named in the path or the default configured filesystem.
> 4. Most methods which currently take FileSystem and Path parameters can be changed to
take only Path.
> 5. Many FileSystem operations (create, open, delete, list, etc.) can become convenience
methods on Path.
> 6. A URLStreamHandler can be defined in terms of the FileSystem API, so that URLs for
any protocol with a registered FileSystem implementation can be accessed with a java.net.URL,
permitting FileSystem implementations to be used on the classpath, etc.
> It is tempting to try to replace Path with java.net.URL, but URL's methods are insufficient
for mapreduce.  We require directory listings, random access, location hints, etc., which
are not supported by existing URLStreamHandler implementations.  But we can expose all FileSystem
implementations for access with java.net.URL.
