Subject [jira] [Commented] (HADOOP-12405) Expose NN RPC via HTTP / HTTPS
Date Mon, 14 Sep 2015 20:53:46 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-12405?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=14744241#comment-14744241

Colin Patrick McCabe commented on HADOOP-12405:
-----------------------------------------------

webhdfs has different goals than NN RPC.  In particular, NN RPC can be changed in incompatible
ways in a major release, whereas webhdfs cannot.  One of the main purposes of webhdfs was
to provide a stable API for doing distcp across versions.  I do not think we should expose
NN RPC calls directly unless we can find some way to address this.

> WebHDFS needs to expose NN RPC calls to allow users to access HDFS via HTTP / HTTPS.
> The current approach is to add REST APIs into WebHDFS one by one manually. It requires
significant efforts from a maintainability point of view. we found that WebHDFS is consistently
lagging behind. It's also hard to maintain the REST RPC stubs.
> There are a lot of values to expose the NN RPC in a HTTP / HTTPS friendly way automatically.
