Subject [jira] [Commented] (HDFS-2631) Rewrite fuse-dfs to use the webhdfs protocol
Date Tue, 17 Apr 2012 02:42:17 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-2631?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13255263#comment-13255263
] 

Eli Collins commented on HDFS-2631:
-----------------------------------

I think it's probably be best write a libhdfs-compatible library that uses webhdfs (HDFS-2656),
keep the existing fuse-dfs code as is, and have the ability to swap in the new library.

> We should port the implementation of fuse-dfs to use the webhdfs protocol. This has a
number of benefits:
> * Compatibility - allows a single fuse client to work across server versions
> * Works with both WebHDFS and Hoop since they are protocol compatible
> * Removes the overhead related to libhdfs (forking a jvm)
> * Makes it easier to support features like security
