Subject [jira] Commented: (HADOOP-1298) adding user info to file
Date Sat, 19 May 2007 01:35:16 GMT

Kurtis Heimerl commented on HADOOP-1298:

In response to Konstantin:

1)There's a tradeoff in that sort of structure. We'd remove the type safety of the methodology.
It's like I said before, we could have a generic changeStuff(stuff, args) method that pushes
that functionality all the way down to the permissions object or INode, but there's no reason
that wouldn't include move or any other INode functionality currently implemented. This change
would give us the ability to modify the INode without changing anyone along the pipeline.
However, I don't  expect there to be a ton of functionality added, so the benefit of strongly
typing and having clear execution paths is higher than the extensibility benefit, imo. Forcing
any INode change to go through all levels gives a very clear idea of exactly what was changing
and gives the ability to have higher levels catch it in other file systems. 

2) I have at least one optimization I could do, that being forcing permissions objects to
use the same Integer objects if they share the same GID or UID.That's reasonable. 

I don't see the benefit of Enums in this case. I could see packing the shorts along the wire
in an object, but what would we be enumerating? The USER_READABLE stuff?

> I'm working on adding a permissions model to hadoop's DFS. The first step is this change,
which associates user info with files. Following this I'll assoicate permissions info, then
block methods based on that user info, then authorization of the user info. 
> So, right now i've implemented adding user info to files. I'm looking for feedback before
I clean this up and make it offical. 
> I wasn't sure what release, i'm working off trunk.
