Subject [jira] [Commented] (HDFS-2284) RW Http access to HDFS
Date Thu, 25 Aug 2011 23:20:29 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-2284?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13091409#comment-13091409

Tsz Wo (Nicholas), SZE commented on HDFS-2284:

The idea is to have a full feature hdfs http interface.  Hftp does not support write and SPNEGO.
 Hoop does not have random redirection and does not preserve data locality.  It seems that
it does not have support/native support of position read, iterative ls, file checksum, get/renew/cancel
delegation token and file concat.  We are going to combine the features in hftp and hoop.
 Since it is an incompatible change if we change hftp://, it is better to have a new scheme,
say httpfs://.  (Any suggestion of the scheme name?)  httpfs is a replacement of hftp but
not hoop since it would not have a proxy server.
