Subject [jira] [Commented] (HDFS-2316) webhdfs: a complete FileSystem implementation for accessing HDFS over HTTP
Date Thu, 03 Nov 2011 19:07:33 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-2316?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13143452#comment-13143452

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

> gethomedir is required as you don't know where the FS impl creates the home dir.

Okay, I can add it to webhdfs.

> The doAs parameter name was chosen to mimic the Java API, real.user is kind of confusing,
do you mean the proxy user or the doAs user. Plus when doing Kerberos you don't use user.name.
IMO doAs is a easier not to get confused.

I am fine with using doAs instead of realUser.

BTW, hadoop auth use "user.name".  The dot in the middle is different from other naming convention.
 How about changing it to username?

> The GET_BLOCK_LOCATIONS private API, how are you differentiating private and public APIs?

We will document it and state that it is a private unstable API.

> 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.
