Subject An FTP client for HDFS
Date Fri, 11 Apr 2008 13:40:24 GMT
Hi Folks,
               There is a requirement at my end to have an FTP client 
that can be used to pull data from a various remote FTP servers and load 
it into  HDFS.  Consequently I am thinking about utilizing Apache 
Commons FTP client to write a command line FTP shell that can be used to 
pull data from an FTP server and store into HDFS.

Would it be useful for the community ?
As an alternative I considered using HADOOP-4 patch but its not yet 
fully tested and committed.

Any thoughts.
