Subject [jira] [Created] (HDFS-9241) HDFS clients can't construct HdfsConfiguration instances
Date Wed, 14 Oct 2015 14:49:05 GMT
Steve Loughran created HDFS-9241:

             Summary: HDFS clients can't construct HdfsConfiguration instances
                 Key: HDFS-9241
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-9241
             Project: Hadoop HDFS
          Issue Type: Bug
            Reporter: Steve Loughran

the changes for the hdfs client classpath make instantiating {{HdfsConfiguration}} from the
client impossible; it only lives server side. This breaks any app which creates one.

I know people will look at the {{@Private}} tag and say "don't do that then", but it's worth
considering precisely why I, at least, do this: it's the only way to guarantee that the hdfs-default
and hdfs-site resources get on the classpath, including all the security settings. It's precisely
the use case which {{HdfsConfigurationLoader.init();}} offers internally to the hdfs code.

What am I meant to do now?
