Subject [jira] Commented: (HADOOP-2885) Restructure the hadoop.dfs package
Date Thu, 06 Mar 2008 23:56:58 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-2885?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12575965#action_12575965

Owen O'Malley commented on HADOOP-2885:

I think that org.apache.hadoop.hdfs.* is better than org.apache.hadoop.fs.hdfs.*. However,
I'm not adamant about it.

I do feel strongly about how this interacts with src directory splitting.


   org.apache.hadoop.hdfs (or fs.hdfs)


You can't put DistributedFileSystem and DFSClient in separate src directories without making
a cyclic dependence and that is very bad. Therefore, I think they both need to be in the hdfs
src tree. I think it is less confusing to have the src trees *not* overlap packages and therefore
it would be better to have it in org.apache.hadoop.hdfs. I would even propose merging DFSClient
and DistributeFileSystem into a single class...

The kfs and s3 could stay in core because they are very thin wrappers over their respective
native file systems.
