Subject [jira] Commented: (HADOOP-6541) An Interactive Hadoop FS shell
Date Fri, 05 Feb 2010 04:20:27 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-6541?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12829958#action_12829958

Jakob Homan commented on HADOOP-6541:
-------------------------------------

I really like this idea and jline would be a good way to do it, but I'm not sure a separate
contrib module is the way to go.  FsShell is definitely due for a refactoring/improvement,
and this might be the opportunity to do it.  Aaron's comments re: speed issues are correct.
 In addition, there's no getting around that our current command line tools are rather clunky
and could be improved within a shell context.  This is a pain point for our users, both new
and experienced.  But since this is true, why not go all the way and improve FsShell with
these features rather than creating a contrib module that has some code duplication and will
have to be maintained separately?
