Erik Forsberg updated HDFS-1169:

    Summary: Can't read binary data off HDFS via thrift API  (was: Can't read binary data
off HDFS)

> Can't read binary data off HDFS via thrift API
> ----------------------------------------------
>                 Key: HDFS-1169
>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-1169
>             Project: Hadoop HDFS
>          Issue Type: Bug
>          Components: contrib/thriftfs
>    Affects Versions: 0.20.2
>            Reporter: Erik Forsberg
> Trying to access binary data stored in HDFS (in my case, TypedByte files generated by
Dumbo) via thrift talking to org.apache.hadoop.thriftfs.HadoopThriftServer, the data I get
back is mangled. For example, when I read a file which contains the value 0xa2, it's coming
back as 0xef 0xbf 0xbd, also known as the Unicode replacement character.
> I think this is because the read method in HadoopThriftServer.java is trying to convert
the data read from HDFS into UTF-8 via the String() constructor. 
> This essentially makes the HDFS thrift API useless for me :-(.
> Not being an expert on Thrift, but would it be possible to modify the API so that it
uses the binary type listed on http://wiki.apache.org/thrift/ThriftTypes?
