Subject Re: HDFS directory listing from the Java API?
Date Wed, 26 Nov 2008 12:10:57 GMT
Hi Shane,

I think what you are looking for is the following:

Path dirPath = new Path("path to dir");
FileStatus[] files = FileSystem.get(conf).listStatus(dirPath);

Each FileStatus entry in the above array contains a Path reference 
(files[i].getPath()) to the file or directory contained in dirPath.
