Subject [jira] [Updated] (HADOOP-7269) S3 Native should allow customizable file meta-data (headers)
Date Wed, 08 Jun 2011 16:39:58 GMT

     [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-7269?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:all-tabpanel
]

Nicholas Telford updated HADOOP-7269:
-------------------------------------

    Status: Patch Available  (was: Open)

This patch only allows the writing of metadata for a new file. You cannot arbitrarily add
metadata for an existing file, nor can you read existing metadata.

The major use-case for this is so that you can provide S3 with instructions about the file
(e.g. Expires, Content-Disposition, etc.) so it's not actually as useless as it sounds.

> The S3 Native FileSystem currently writes all files with a set of default headers:
>  * Content-Type: binary/octet-stream
>  * Content-Length: <computed from object size>
>  * Content-MD5: <computed from object data>
> This is a good start, however many applications would benefit from the ability to customize
(for example) the Content-Type and Expires headers for the file. Ideally the implementation
should be abstract enough to customize all of the available S3 headers and provide a facility
for other FileSystems to specify optional file metadata.
