Subject [jira] [Created] (HADOOP-8195) Backport FileContext to branch-1
Date Wed, 21 Mar 2012 01:08:38 GMT
Backport FileContext to branch-1
--------------------------------

                 Key: HADOOP-8195
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-8195
             Project: Hadoop Common
          Issue Type: New Feature
          Components: fs
            Reporter: Eli Collins


It's hard to get users to migrate to FileContext because they (rightly!) want their software
to work against Hadoop 1.x which only has FileSystem. Backporting FileContext to branch-1
would allow people to migrate to FileContext and still work against both Hadoop 1.x and 2.x
(or whatever we call it). It probably isn't that much work since FileContext is mostly net
new code with lots of tests. It's a pain to support the same code in two places, but we already
have to do that with FileSystem, and that's the cost of introducing a new API instead of improving
FileSystem in place.
