Subject [jira] [Commented] (HDFS-2316) webhdfs: a complete FileSystem implementation for accessing HDFS over HTTP
Date Fri, 28 Oct 2011 20:33:32 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-2316?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13138726#comment-13138726
] 

Tsz Wo (Nicholas), SZE commented on HDFS-2316:
----------------------------------------------

> 1. versioning

Added v1 to the prefix, i.e. the url is http://nn:port/webhdfs/v1/path/to/file?op=...

> 2. ranges

Since it is optional in the http spec, let's use offset and length query parameters.

> 3. params case sensitivity

Won't case insensitive parameter names be more user friendly?

> 4. permissions format

Let's use octal.  Handling sticky bit with ls output style is tricky.

> 5. protocol scheme to use

Do you mean the FileSystem scheme?  Webhdfs is using "webhdfs://".  I think "http://" is not
suitable to be overloaded as a FileSystem scheme.

> 6. how to get the create/append handle ...

Commented on HDFS-2178.

Sorry that I am still updating the doc.

> We current have hftp for accessing HDFS over HTTP.  However, hftp is a read-only FileSystem
and does not provide "write" accesses.
> In HDFS-2284, we propose to have webhdfs for providing a complete FileSystem implementation
for accessing HDFS over HTTP.  The is the umbrella JIRA for the tasks.
