Subject [jira] Commented: (HADOOP-6223) New improved FileSystem interface for those implementing new files systems.
Date Fri, 25 Sep 2009 19:39:16 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-6223?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12759718#action_12759718
] 

Sanjay Radia commented on HADOOP-6223:
--------------------------------------

>Fs is better. AFS is taken by Andrew File System. 
The class name is AbstractFileSystem; I was just using AFS in my comments because I was too
lazy to type the full class name.
I am open to other names Fs, Vfs, FileSystemBase, etc.

> The FileContext API (HADOOP-4952) provides an improved interface for the application
writer.
> This lets us simplify the FileSystem API since it will no longer need to deal with notions
of default filesystem [ / ],  wd, and config
> defaults for blocksize, replication factor etc. Further it will not need the many overloaded
methods for create() and open() since
> the FileContext API provides that convenience.
> The FileSystem API can be simplified and can now be restricted to those implementing
new file systems.
> This jira proposes that we create new file system API,  and deprecate FileSystem API
after a few releases.
