Subject [jira] Commented: (HADOOP-1069) Rename Hadoop record I/O to Jute
Date Tue, 06 Mar 2007 21:58:24 GMT

Sameer Paranjpye commented on HADOOP-1069:

These are not bad names, IMO. I didn't have to walk down the list to come up with these, it
was the first thought that crossed my mind.

FWIW, MapReduce is not a particularly descriptive name. It is a label that has been made popular
by the MR paper. If a person hasn't read the paper, hears about Hadoop being a distributed
computing platform, and then starts browsing the javadoc - the name 'org.apache.hadoop.mapred'
doesn't bring up an image of a cluster performing computation.

There are cases where you need descriptive names and cases where you need labels or brands.
The latter are by far less common than the former, but they do come up. They are often merited
by applications or frameworks, this is such a case.

> jute was the original name of the hadoop record i/o component. IMHO, it is easier to
pronounce, easier to remember and has already stuck among its users. This renaming should
be done while there isn't a large codebase using jute, otherwise it will be very difficult
later. rcc will be renamed jrc (jute record compiler).
