Subject [jira] [Commented] (HDFS-2316) webhdfs: a complete FileSystem implementation for accessing HDFS over HTTP
Date Wed, 02 Nov 2011 19:15:33 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-2316?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13142431#comment-13142431

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

@Alejandro

> On #3, it will be confusing to users that part of the URL is case sensitive (the path)
and part it is not (the query-string). Given that HDFS is case sensitive, making the path
case insensitive is not an option. Thus, I'm suggesting to make it all case sensitive and
there will be no confusion there.

We cannot make it all case sensitive, e.g. scheme and authority are case insensitive.  For
examples,

- [hTTps://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-2316] - works
- https://iSSues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-2316 - works
- https://issues.apache.org/jira/BRowse/HDFS-2316 - does not works

> 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.
