Subject Re: Does libhdfs require Java
Date Tue, 18 Mar 2008 18:43:34 GMT
Unfortunately not. Actually the libhdfs implementation is just a front-face
in C++ for the original Java code of HDFS. It uses JNI to access the
original code which requires the Java Runtime Environment.

Hope it answers your question.
