Subject [jira] Commented: (HADOOP-6909) Umbrella ticket for reducing the number of libraries in Common
Date Wed, 11 Aug 2010 03:39:19 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-6909?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12897129#action_12897129

Ranjit Mathew commented on HADOOP-6909:

??I think it makes sense to move fs APIs like FileSystem and FileContext into HDFS. The same
way as mapreduce APIs like Mapper and Reducer are in mapreduce project.??

I believe HDFS is _a_ file-system supported by Hadoop and it could potentially end up supporting
others (e.g Ceph via HADOOP-6253).
So it makes sense to have a common FS API that then has a concrete implementation in HDFS.

> There seems to be some consensus that moving libraries out of Common, with the eventual
goal of getting rid of the Common package all together, is a good idea: http://hadoop.markmail.org/thread/jhiactdekhywznac.
Hopefully we can collect the incremental tasks needed to achieve that goal here.
