Subject [jira] [Commented] (HADOOP-12910) Add new FileSystem API to support asynchronous method calls
Date Thu, 17 Mar 2016 22:58:33 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-12910?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=15200563#comment-15200563
] 

Tsz Wo Nicholas Sze commented on HADOOP-12910:
----------------------------------------------

We usually add API first to FileSystem and then to FileContext.  It may make sense to add
the async API only to FileContext.  Will study this option in more details.

> Add a new API, namely FutureFileSystem (or AsynchronousFileSystem, if it is a better
name).  All the APIs in FutureFileSystem are the same as FileSystem except that the return
type is wrapped by Future, e.g.
> {code}
>   //FileSystem
>   public boolean rename(Path src, Path dst) throws IOException;
>   //FutureFileSystem
>   public Future<Boolean> rename(Path src, Path dst) throws IOException;
> {code}
> Note that FutureFileSystem does not extend FileSystem.
