Subject [jira] [Commented] (HDFS-2284) RW Http access to HDFS
Date Fri, 26 Aug 2011 20:31:29 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-2284?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13092004#comment-13092004

Milind Bhandarkar commented on HDFS-2284:

.bq You were one of the folks pushing HTTP rw and file ranges when at Yahoo. It made sense
then and still makes sense.

Sanjay, it made sense then because wire-compatiblity for native RPC was years away. After
MR went-wire compatible, and provided a template, it looks like wire-compatiblity for HDFS
is nearby.

Your proposal took me back to 2006, when HDFS-225 was filed, and had a patch, which rotted.

So, if the goal is to make HDFS webdav-mountable, I am very excited.

If the goal is to provide yet another RPC mechanism, I don't see much value in that.
