Subject [jira] [Created] (HDFS-7590) Stabilize and document getBlockLocation API in WebHDFS
Date Wed, 07 Jan 2015 22:54:35 GMT
Jakob Homan created HDFS-7590:

             Summary: Stabilize and document getBlockLocation API in WebHDFS
                 Key: HDFS-7590
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-7590
             Project: Hadoop HDFS
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: webhdfs
    Affects Versions: 2.6.0
            Reporter: Jakob Homan

Currently the GET_BLOCK_LOCATIONS op is marked as private, unstable and is not documented
in the WebHDFS web page.  The getBlockLocations is a public, stable API on FileSystem.  WebHDFS'
GBL response is private-unstable because the API currently directly serializes out the LocatedBlocks
instance and LocatedBlocks is private-unstable.  

A public-stable version of the response should be agreed upon and documented.
