Subject Re: [jira] Updated: (HADOOP-800) More improvements to DFS browsing WI
Date Tue, 15 May 2007 11:51:47 GMT
Hi, i have moved (x) in it's own issue : 

Unfortunatelly i again was not able to reproduce (c). The resulting html 
from so called file viewer(actually browseBlock.jsp) does not contain 
any directives to refresh the page, may be you are not using the latest 
version of hadoop? Arkady, can you please send me the html of the page 
so that i can check again? normally for html documents contain
<meta http-equiv="refresh" content="600"> or some javascript to refresh 
the page, but as far as i can tell, browseBlock.jsp does not.

Coming to (d), the text from the file is wrapped in a html <textarea> . 
The number of rows and columns are required attributes to be given to 
this tag. The html looks like :

<textarea cols="100" rows="25" wrap="virtual" READONLY>

//text of the file


we cannot make cols stretch as wide as the window width(because we don't 
know!). We can either increase it to say 120 or make it a parameter, but 
the latter will seem ugly i think.

Another option like you suggested is to delete the textarea tag, but IMO 
it clearly seperates the file's content from the rest of the page, and 
also it allows for more compact display of long content.

long story short, I suggest we increase cols to 120 to attack (d).
