Subject [jira] [Created] (HDFS-2631) Rewrite fuse-dfs to use the webhdfs protocol
Date Mon, 05 Dec 2011 17:52:40 GMT
Rewrite fuse-dfs to use the webhdfs protocol

                 Key: HDFS-2631
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-2631
             Project: Hadoop HDFS
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: contrib/fuse-dfs
            Reporter: Eli Collins

We should port the implementation of fuse-dfs to use the webhdfs protocol. This has a number
of benefits:
* Compatibility - allows a single fuse client to work across server versions
* Works with both WebHDFS and Hoop since they are protocol compatible
* Removes the overhead related to libhdfs (forking a jvm)
* Makes it easier to support features like security
