Hi JD,

FileSystem is a public API but DFSClient is an internal class.  For developing Hadoop applications,
we should use FileSystem.

What is the difference between DFSClient Protocol and FileSystem class in Hadoop DFS (HDFS).
Both of these classes are used for connecting a remote client to the namenode in HDFS. So,

 I wanted to know the advantages of one over the other and which one is suitable for remote-client
connection.


Regards,
JD
