Subject [jira] [Created] (HDFS-7368) Support HDFS specific 'shell' on command 'hdfs dfs' invocation
Date Thu, 06 Nov 2014 06:15:35 GMT
Vinayakumar B created HDFS-7368:

             Summary: Support HDFS specific 'shell' on command 'hdfs dfs' invocation
                 Key: HDFS-7368
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-7368
             Project: Hadoop HDFS
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: hdfs-client
            Reporter: Vinayakumar B
            Assignee: Vinayakumar B

* *hadoop fs* is the generic implementation for all filesystem implementations, but some of
the operations are supported only in some filesystems. Ex: snapshot commands, acl commands,
xattr commands.
* *hdfs dfs* is recommended in all hdfs related docs in current releases.

In current code  both *hdfs shell* and *hadoop fs* points to hadoop common implementation
of FSShell.
It would be better to have HDFS specific extention of FSShell which includes HDFS only commands
in future.
