Subject [jira] [Commented] (HDFS-2316) webhdfs: a complete FileSystem implementation for accessing HDFS over HTTP
Date Tue, 01 Nov 2011 22:39:33 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-2316?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13141709#comment-13141709

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


> GET GETHOMEDIRECTORY operation is missing.

Do we really need it?  DistributedFileSystem implements it by simple creating a path locally

operations seem to be the ones that don't make sense (at the moment) in a proxy scenario.
We should make those operations as optional.

I agree that GETFILEBLOCKLOCATIONS should be a private API.  Let's rename it to GET_BLOCK_LOCATIONS.

For the delegation token ops, they seems making sense in proxy scenario.  E.g. Oozie needs
it with proxy.

> The 'doas' query parameter is missing, this is required to enable proxyuser functionality.

In RPC, we use "realUser" for the user submitting the call and "user" for the effective user,
e.g. If Oozie performs an opertions as "nicholas", then realUser is "oozie" and user is "nicholas".
 How about we have something similar, say real.user and user.name?

> The 'user.name' query parameter is optional as this is used only in the case of pseudo
authentication, in the case of other authentication mechanism the username will be taken for
the authentication credentials.

> 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.
